Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Start Firefox browser 2.Try to browse (1 tab, 10 tabs no diff) 3.Frequently, not always, FF sucks CPU, system resources
Um, I'm sorry, but you are going to have to provide a lot more information for us to be able to figure out what is going on. Does this happen in a new clean profile, http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Managing+profiles. What websites show this reliably? Are all your plugins (flash, quicktime, java) updated to the latest version found on their developer's websites? How much is a lot? What are specific numbers you are seeing.

http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Managing+profiles rob, create a new profile, and test there. Also, update your flash, quicktime, adobe reader, java, etc. to the latest versions that are found on the developer's websites. If after doing all that you still see an issue, create a new bug.
thanks for the reply Tyler. now i could wast my time going thrugh some further tests. OR, you could admit there is a (threading/deadlock) problem with FF as attested by thoussnds of posts on this exact subject all over the web and all over your own bug board and all over your own forums. we cant all be wrong and we all have the exact same problem: your broken software!
Rob, without you going, creating a new clean profile, and updating all your plugins, there are so man factors that we don't have any place to start. Obviously I use firefox every day, and if i saw such an issue I would file a bugreport myself, but i don't. See, we need you to give all the information. If you read all those bug reports, you will see that most of them are cased by extensions or old plugins.
