Great news! I have found the source of problem. So, there is a MINING SCRIPT embedded to my CPU that makes Mozilla Firefox to use all of my CPU resource to mine. I don't know how the script can be embedded, my guess is from the malicious website that i visited or.. downloaded crack games

Start Firefox in Troubleshoot Mode to check if one of the extensions ("3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Extensions) or if hardware acceleration or userChrome.css is causing the problem.

  • switch to the DEFAULT theme: "3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Themes
  • do NOT click the "Refresh Firefox" button on the Troubleshoot Mode start window

You can create a new profile as a quick test to see if your current profile is causing the problem.

See "Creating a profile":

If the new profile works then you can transfer files from a previously used profile to the new profile, but be cautious not to copy corrupted files to avoid carrying over problems.

I'm sorry but i think the best thing to do for now is to uninstall the firefox. I wonder what instance that updating my firefox
