I'm currently running firefox 3.0.3, mozilla build,  under fedora 7
(yes, I know I need to upgrade to 3.0.6, also to fedora 10)..  Anyway,
one of the problems I find is that firefox just chews up CPU cycles
doing nothing.  Right now it's eating 15% of my 3.06 ghz Xeon CPU while
I'm typing this message in evolution.  Quite often it starts eating 80%
or more of the CPU time and I find I have to start closing tabs or
restarting it to get it to stop.  I do notice very severe performance
problems with firefox when it does this.

Does anyone else see unreasonable usage of CPU resources from Firefox?
