npviewer.bin eating my cpu. help!
A few weeks ago, the performance on my computer started deteriorating badly, and it's not come back. When I execute "top," the culprit, usually eating around 25% of the cpu, is "npviewer.bin." Firefox itself seems to be sitting on 25% of my memory, which seems excessive.
Unless I'm mistaken, npviewer is a wrapper for running flash apps in firefox. I don't have permanent flash apps running on my Wordpress blog page. Is it possible I've acquired a virus of some sort? Can anyone suggest a way to streamline this firefox beast, and help me improve the performance of my desktop machine?
Oh, PS: Fedora core 9 on Athlon i386, 2 gig of RAM.
