Looking at this now .. here is how it appears to work:

there is a wrapper ..


That is one process .. and it starts the rest
then there is a process called:

-childID 1

That seems to be the main broswer process .. all the things besides the
actual TABS.


Then each tab you open spawns a seperate process .. so the first TAB
(that is your home page) spawns a process with '-childID 2'


Other tabs seem to spawn an other new '-childID <X>'

So, it seems that the main process and the '-childID 1' process stay
forever // and some of the other Child processes start and stop as required.

if you do ps -ef | grep firefox, you can get info on the processes ..
and I an certainly not an expert .. but I don't see any issues.
