With all of the ads and animations and automatic refreshes and so forth on web pages these days I'm not sure what is to blame for this, but I am really Not Happy with these frequent bouts of 100% CPU usage. I try to keep as few tabs open as possible now (where before I never even thought about it) but while this seems to help it hasn't cured the problem. When I close Firefox the problem goes away.
Hi Franca,

ITS FIREFOX..... I can be on FACEBOOK.COM on my windows log in and then have maybe a facebook app up then switch user accounts to my mom's and she could of left by accident a facebook app up and by the time I catch it an hour later because my PC speed has degregated so badly, I try to go FILE > EXIT and cant and wind up using CTRL F4 to just kill the whole Firefox process. I am starting to find myself doing that more and more unfortunately.
