This might make sense with what I've seen of Firefox hangs with 100% of CPU. It occurs frequently when using on several tabs. The occurrence today happened when someone else was using our internet connection to the point that when Neopets page tried to update, the connection was unavailable. It hung for a bit, then finally returned, still using 100% cpu, and the only way to get the CPU to go down once it's that high is to restart Firefox.
