(Also works in Serpent, BTW.) This splits FF (or Serpent) into two processes.

These prefs do matter on later Windows versions (and are the preferred method of enabling e10s) but let's stick with FF 52.9 on XP for now. On 5/18/2019 at 8:17 AM, Dave-H said: dom.ipc.processCount Once e10s is enabled, this controls how many additional processes you can have. There's one "core" process plus one process per open tab up to the limit set by this pref. Personally, I set dom.ipc.processCount to 2. The default of 1 gives me little benefit, but larger values just waste RAM while providing little additional benefit, at least in my experience. But as usual, YMMV. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
