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

I'm using 32 bit 11.0/KDE3 without eye candy on a 3.4G Cedar Mill P4
(Hyperthreading) with 4G RAM, Intel G31 video. With 2 Youtube tabs, and tabs for 5 of the people in that
movie's images pages, top shows FF using 400M virt & 130-140% CPU, with
overall CPU between 60-70%. I have installed flash-player and various goodies
like libdvdcss & vlc from the non-default repos. It takes FF a ridiculous
time just to switch tabs.
