What is mean `alloc factor 0.900000 0.900000` after using 'ps -A | firefox'? [Resolved]

My browser stop response. I closed firefox, and trying open him again. Firefox not running, and i type ps -A:

7122 ? 01:07:56 firefox-esr

I'm not kill this process, and type:

ps -A | firefox:

I get these 2 strings:

alloc factor 0.900000 0.900000

alloc factor 0.900000 0.900000

enter image description here

After ps -A | firefox command I get it:

Your screenshot shows a mistaken command:

ps -A | firefox

when you meant to type:

ps -A | grep firefox

To stop any existing firefox process, try: pkill firefox-esr or pkill -9 firefox-esr
