When is Firefox going to stop being so inefficient and such a resource hog?

Websites that run fine on Safari will consume RIDICULOUS amount of CPU time when open in tabs on Firefox. This is NOT a website issue. This is a FIREFOX issue. Doing a little bit of searching on the internet, this has apparently been an ONGOING problem for FIREFOX.

I am tired of all the "possible" explanations, especially after ruling them out.

NO, it's NOT "add-on" or extensions. NO, it's NOT "preferences." NO, it's NOT "the website."

IT IS FIREFOX.

I am ready to PERMANENTLY DELETE Firefox—just like I did with Chrome—and NEVER look back.

Sad. I remember the days when Firefox was my only browser.

Too bad it's developers seem (really) inept.
