Hi all,

Can someone assist me to sort out a 100% CPU usage by FireFox. It
happens with all 3.X versions. FF is unusable at the moment. I have
searched and see that it has been a problem in most FF versions and
Linux. I need an urgent fix. Our ERPII system uses Web Browsers (Web 2.0
& LAMP). The Windows users with M$IE have no problems, but it is banned
in our company.

System: OpenSUSE 10.3
Linux ~ #1 SMP 2008-10-14 22:17:43 +0200 x86_64
x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv: Gecko/2008121300
SUSE/3.0.5-2.3 Firefox/3.0.5

I do not believe Firefox is the problem, but a plug-in. My suspicion is
acroread using nspluginwrapper (since I see you are using x86_64. I
have seen that cause 100% and massive memory leak. That problem was so
bad I have changed mine to open pdfs with Kpdf instead of Acrobat Reader
(for both Thunderbird and Firefox, though it was mostly the plug-in
causing the problems.

Hi Per, jdd, Hugo, Wolfgang, Joe,

I thank you all for responding!

OK; first I am going to test without any plug-ins to see if it improves.
We will also deactivate plug-ins on the Windows machines. I will report
the results shortly.

Installed are: Adblock (Win & Lin), Beagle Indexer (was deactivated in
Lin, not installed in Win), Deutsches Woerterbuch (Win & Lin), FoxStox
(Lin), NoScript (Win & Lin), Print Context Menu (Lin)
[Win=XP & Vista & Lin=OpenSUSE 10.3]
