I've posted a screenshot twice with the smilies on during a reply with no CPU usage. Please try putting Firefox into safe mode with images on and see
if your problem is gone. If it's gone, then something else is the issue. Maybe Java needs updated. Have you checked your version of Java?

Safe mode does not help. I am in safe mode now.
With Firefox visible my CPU is doing way too much work. It is not overclocked.
If I minimize Firefox the problem goes away. Cores 1,3,5,and 8 are the ones reacting.
Java is SE 7 U25 10.25.2.17
Just sitting here thinking of what to write my CPU fan is highly active, it only does that during game play.
I acknowledge all the work you have done but I think this is a separate issue or at least it is different.
Just for your information, I was dealing with computers back when Fortran and Cobol were the bee's knees.
No one seems to want to fault find anymore. These days it really is, blame the hardware / blame the software / Oh it's a virus / re-install
everything. What happened to find the underlying (ie the real issue) problem and bloody well fix it. Sorry, it is just frustrating as hell.
Much the same in Electronics, replace the module, oh, we don't make those any more, throw it away and buy another piece of junk. LOL.
This problem, for me, only started with the recent ATS upgrade. I do not believe in coincidence.
That is all I have unless you have any more suggestions.
I have too much invested in FF. Would hate to lose all my bookmarks and such like. That would suck lead balls.
