Perfect. Like I said, that setting only applies to the processes that are used to run web content, so you will still have multiple processes listed for Firefox. There"s no way to merge everything into a single process.

If you are interested in seeing what each process is being used for, you can go to the about:memory page in Firefox and press the Measure button. This will give you a complete detailed breakdown of the memory used by each process, but you can look at the right side in the Process Index section to see the processes and what they are used for.
