Firefox,Electrolysis and e10sFirefox 48, which is known for its name, is activated little by little by Firefox 48. We will start with 1% of all users initially, and if there is no problem, we will increase it to about half of all users.

Desktop version and Android version of Firefox with major improvements released today | Mozilla Japan blog

What happens when you activate e10s which is one of multi-process Firefox is that processing of Web contents and processing of the user interface of Firefox are divided into different processes, so freezing is reduced. For information on whether Firefox you are using is activating e10s, enter "about: support" in the address bar, and in the multiprocess window item "1/1 (default by default)" on Windows or Linux, Mac "If 1/1 (valid by default)" is displayed, it seems to be validated.
