Re: Firefox 3 hogging 90% CPU, can anything be done about this?



I had the problem with FF taken too much of my resources, so I do not use it
as often.
I use Chrome more often. FF has more tools available.

Sometime after opening Firefox 3 in Fedora 10 it will start grabbing 90%

only seems to delay the time somewhat until the cpu goes to 90%.

Is there nothing else that can be done about this? If Adobe won't fix
the problem, don't we have to do something?

What does Adobe have to do with Firefox?

If your problem is with websites that use Flash, then it's a Flash issue,
not a
Firefox issue. Do you have still the problem when you don't use those
websites? What if you remove the Flash plugin from your Firefox
installation?
Does the problem go away?

If your problem is with Flash and not with Firefox, then are you using the
32-bit or 64-bit version of Flash? Does it happen only with the Flash
stuff on
one particular website, or with several? Do you still see the problem on
commonly-used Flash sites like youtube?
