CPU load 100% with Firefox.


I have have noticed that I have same problem with Firefox 2.0.11...

I have a Core 2 duo T7300 2Ghz...
When surfing the web with firefox with 7/8 tab opened one cpu core goes to 100%...
It remains to 100% until I close firefox... What does it means?
Is there a solution to that problem?

Please help.
Regards,
Davide.

What happens when you reopen with all those tabs?
Do you have permissive settings?

100% cpu load is random... I'm not able to reproduce the problem... really random...

What do you mean with permissive settings?

I had a similar problem when I had debian(?). I cant really recall. Anyway, some distros use iceweasel insted of firefox (Basically the same with different logo). As a desperate shot, I removed iceweasel and installed firefox. I don't know why (Since they are practically the same), but it got better.

I mean, do you have javascript, cookies, flash and all those pretty sparkely things enabled by default?

Then why do you think it is firefox? Suggest, use a different browser and see if the problem comes up again.

Sure, we live into 2008, this is the minimum requirements for surfing the web.

Because there is many software to monitor system/user process.
