As of yesterday, my testing (current) system has slowed down a whole

actually 'container', but the column's too small for the last letter)
using anything from 15-20 %CPU, and so I'm thinking it's the culprit. I
could just kill it and see what else breaks :) But does anyone know who
or what owns it, or how I can find out?

Yes, as Brian says is the wrapper for mozilla based plugins:

Killing firefox/icewasel should stop it or just exiting from a web page
that loads the flash player plugin should also reduce the amount of cpu
cycles that uses.
