User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20021104 Chimera/0.6 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20021104 Chimera/0.6 I'm not 100% sure of this, but I think that flash content displayed in iframes are causing Chimera to pin the CPU at 100% usage. The 100% usage is confirmable, but I'm not quite sure if it's the flash content in iframes that's doing it. Example - go to http://www.macromedia.com/ - the flash content on the homepage loads fine and the CPU usage seems normal (around 35-40%). On the Salon homepage, however (http://www.salon.com/), if you have a flash tower or banner ad the CPU usage shoots up to 100%, scrolling becomes massively slow, and the browser is almost non-responsive. This just started happening in the last few nightlies, from what I can tell. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3.
I am experiencing exactly the same problem here. The Mozilla build I am using is "Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20021130", and flash plugin is "Shockwave Flash 6.0 r61". Another example: <http://tech.sina.com.cn/>. (Open a news page in a new tab/window.)
Neil: I am not seeing a plug-in in any of the iframes, can you narrow it down to a specific page?
See bug 180527
Need a good test case for this one...
Neil, can you still reproduce this problem using a current nightly build?
Summary: Flash in iframe (I think) pins CPU at 100% → Flash in IFRAME (I think) pins CPU at 100%

for verification purposes, can you report if it works ok on MacOSX with Flash 7 beta ? http://www.macromedia.com/software/flashplayer/public_beta/
