    Hey guys, recently my MacBook has been running very loud when i only have like, 2 applications open. This started maybe 3 days ago. The 2 applications were iTunes and Firefox. on iTunes i just play music and on Firefox im on Youtube or RuneScape. It's been running fine ever since i bought it just over an year ago (playing the same applications) but now its started to get loud when i use it. Heres my Activity Monitor when i had RuneScape/iTunes on:

    The fans are running loud you mean? Are they on all the time? Firefox is using a lot of cpu in that pic.

    Flash tends to use a lot of CPU cycles.

    As you can see the CPU usage of firefox is quite high.

    I can't think of anything it could be other than watching a lot of youtube videos honestly.

    Im not big on firefox but you could try clearing the history and cookies/cache see if that helps
