However, Mozilla is not immune to bugs and issues. One issue that is repeatedly reported by Firefox users is that there are multiple Firefox processes running in the background. Because of this the browser reportedly becomes slow and even crashes. In this article, I have discussed how to make Firefox disable multi processes running in the background.
Why Does Firefox Have So Many Processes?
The reason so many processes run for a single window in Firefox is that it enhances the web performance significantly.

Press the Ctrl + Shift + Esc keys to open the Task Manager.Select the Processes tab and see how many Firefox processes are running in the background.
After that close the Firefox.
Now, check if the Firefox disabled multi processes or not.

You can also use this method to disable Firefox multi-process. To do it, follow the steps given below:
Launch Firefox.Type about:config in the address bar and press Enter.Click on the Accept the Risk and Continue option.In the about config search bar, type browser.tabs.remote.autostart.When the config value appears on your screen, change it to False by clicking on the button next to it.
