okay so I'm looking at my istat and it says firefox is running 85% of my cpu why is that?
What plugins do you have in use with it?
Also, restart your computer, reopen firefox and check again.
i looked into my add on in firefox and it lists
java embedded plugin
will restart now
okay its back to less than 30% and fluctuates to 1% but i dont get how it went up that high in the first place it was at a constant 80+%
Maybe it was some Flash fracking around. This can be sometimes highly CPU intensive, depending what CPU you have.
use flashblock to help performance
Try using the extension flashblock to stop the flash applications from eating your system up.
defnitely something wrong with firefox here, since the first incindent i've been monitoring firefox. I like to tab my windows and just a few minutes ago i had 8 running looking at my smc fan control my temps went up to 70c fan was runnin at 3500rpm so i checked my activity window and firefox was at 101% resources...anyone have a clue?
You should open one tab at a time and monitor CPU usage. You should be able to narrow down the site.
It's Flash, it's always Flash.
maybe i should just stick to safari
Give it a try and see what the CPU usage is.
