Windows 7: Question to learn about Flash Player

Question to learn about Flash Player

Something I saw in another thread about a problem. So I checked my systems.

I noticed that on some websites I visit that at times Adobe Flash Player will start up under the processes tab (Ctrl+Alt+Del). But I will see two instances. If I go to let's say the Google search page then Flash Player is off.

Is having two instances of Flash Player a problem? I checked 2 other systems I have and they do the same thing.

All systems are using Firefox 25.0.1, the latest Flash Player 11.9.900.152, Windows 7 64-bit Pro. Just wondering, I am so used to one session per service.

Process name please.

As far as I can work out flash player runs under the plugin-container process and doesn't appear in task manager in it's own right.

I visit Adobe - Flash Player and activate the flash plugin to allow it to run.

In Cyberfox (Firefox 64bit) the plugin-container.exe appears with Adobe Flash library NPSWF32.dll within it. No Flash*.exe processes appear anywhere.
