Do you get this for every site you view in Firefox?

I've got GKrellm permanently docked at the right hand side of my right hand monitor so I can get an overview of my system loading; CPU, network, disk, etc.

Some sites I visit with Firefox can cause one of the cores to saturate, usually with some unwanted video advert or extraneous junk going on. Closing the tab usually returns it to normal.

Play Bonny!

Your video card probably has little to do with the problem. The situation you describe is usually caused by a script that wants to run, but firefox won't allow it.

I second what AwesomeMachine said.

When this happens, wait to see whether Firefox throws an "unresponsive script" error message. It can take what seems like forever (but is usually only a couple of minutes).

I saw the web-content issue (and 100% on one core) on Chrome with the google "don't auto-run HTML5" plugin. Removed the plugin, problem went away. I never run video in f/f, but it occasionally chews up CPU and RAM, so I just kill and restart it.
Probably a better answer out there, but satisfies my needs.
