this is the printscreen of the activity monitor during a cpu overload of more as 100% by firefox during a period of inactivity
Do you get this in the Firefox safemode ?
via private mail :
"I think that i found the culprit

as even in the safe mode of firefox the cpu started suddenly to run out of control
with  my usual windows open in firefox
i started to switch on and off one by one the windows and I found out that the culprit url
was the home page of myspace

witout the "home" of myspace open firefox had 4,0  cpu use
with the "home" of myspace open the cpu use of firefox ran immediately up to allready 84 %

so not having the "home" of myspace open in the background solves this cpu overload problem

and saves temperature of my cpu and my fans do not need to work anymore in overdrive"

I will mark this wfm, pages with many flash applets are using more CPU, that is not unusual.
