    Is anyone else having this problem when they log into their AOL webmail through aol.com while using firefox and the fans go to the max and temperatures reach 75-80C?

    It only seems to happen when I use firefox and then I have to force quit it because simply closing the aol page doesn't end it.

    Any ideas?

    thats odd..i have a 2.2SR blackbook and i run:

    firefox
    thunderbird
    adium
    itunes (song playing)

    all at once and my temp is 48-52c (fan speed set to 2500rpm)

    try downloading smcfancontrol and adjusting your fan speeds.

    No no...everything runs fine and I have smcfancontrol...the only problem is when I am on firefox and go check my aol webmail that the temperature for some reason shoots up.

    EDIT: hmm..check your activity monitor when you're on the aol webmail site. are the numbers really high under CPU? (for firefox)

    I have the same problem when I play music on Last.fm's website. The CPU usage goes up quite a bit.

    Firefox usually made my MBP hot too. Switched to Camino and has never had any problems since :)
