I believe that this problem is actually caused by placing increasing numbers of bookmarked URL's in the bookmarks toolbar folder. This has been true of all previous versions as I have experienced this problem. It is easy to duplicate the problem. After a certain number of links, dropping URL links into the bookmarks toolbar folder causes a memory leak and the CPU utilization jumps to somewhere over 95%. Removing the bookmarks from this folder causes this behavior to disappear. Currently I am using 184.108.40.206 and this behavior still exists. Basically, the bookmarks toolbar folder must be small or memory leaks/CPU utilization problems will appear.
