i am facing issue with high CPU usage on firefox in completely different process other as visible in task manager than my actual process for firefox. is there something wrong with firefox or my system.
This separate process uses more than 60% of my CPU (AMD Ryzen 5 4600). If I close that process in the task manager nothing happens to my current firefox process and i can use firefox normally.
But everytime this separate process starts my system fans ramp up and CPU temps peaks to 70 degrees celsius. and i have to end that process to make it run normally. Thats a quite annoying process to do every time.
I am able to recreate this separate process by:
- 1. Plug my system for charging
- 2. I was working offline and connect to internet
both the times the separate process automatically starts and uses very high amount of CPU. I even left my system for 2 hours to keep that process running and complete whatever it was doing. but nothing happend. It continued to run for 2 hours also.
Please find a solution for this. I have already tried solutions provided in the forum:
- Restarting firefox
- Refreshing Firefox
- Enabling hardware accleration
- Clearing some user profile data
- Completely uninstalling firefox and deleting the residual files then reinstalling etc.
but nothing worked.
