Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
At 6 vs 6.6 processes/tab your numbers don't really make FF look much better.
I'm a bit surprised FF has apparently spun up almost all of it's processes at startup even with your only having a single tab open. It's 37 tabs and 7 processes here.
1 Top level process.
4 Shared tab content processes (to limit ram bloat FF only runs 4 content processes by default)
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
Training a telescope on one’s own belly button will only reveal lint. You like that? You go right on staring at it. I prefer looking at galaxies.

9 tabs, 25 processes.
12 extensions loaded, and I believe each of those gets a process even if they aren't being used at the moment.
Most of the processes are sitting there with 0% CPU, Disk, and network; and memory below 30MB, so I don;t worry about 'em.
It makes sense to put each extension is it's own process: if it crashes it doesn't take the rest down with it.
It's changed: 7 tabs, 13 processes. Maybe each extension doesn't get a process ...

It's the bane of cross platform development. Processes are reasonably consistent from Windows to MacOS to Linux. Threads, on the other hand, are a nightmare to develop cross platform. Take a look at the "single threaded" Excel application and you can see up to 25 threads for a single workbook open.
The real question is how many of those processes are in a sleep state of some sort, thereby taking just swap space and no processor.
