    As Victek stated, Tools (or Open Menu icon) > Options > General tab; scroll down to Performance section.

    In the Performance section if "Use recommended performance settings" is checked the option to set the "content process limit" is hidden.

    This sounds good to me, I wonder what took them so long to implement these changes. I noticed that pages really load more quickly in FF57. I see virtually no difference with Chrome/Vivaldi.

    Thanks, that did the trick. I'm now getting a bit excited again, this really reduces RAM usage quite a lot. Now FF 57 needs to offer certain features out of the box and it will be almost perfect. Not to forget about certain extensions that still need to become compatible, but I have no doubt this will happen. :thumb:
