Anyone else notice excessive cpu usage with Firefox 77.0.1? It's been going on for the past week. 17.6-27% cpu usage just sitting here on the support page only after a fresh restart of the computer.

I also just noticed tonight not a single page would load. Switched to trouble shooting which disables the addons and pages loaded. Closed the browser and opened it again to be in normal mode and started disabling addons. The one I disabled to get pages to load again was Adblock Plus. Go figure of all the addons this is the one that is going to kill the browser from loading anything. I've already sent a report for this on the addon itself not sure what else to do there other then enjoy a bunch of adds for a while.

The one that concerns me more is Firefox just sucking away at the power for no reason at all. I can fill the top bar with tabs normally and not be using this much cpu. I would say it has developed a memory leak of sorts or something considering it's using 0 disk and network activity yet currently is using 18.4% cpu and 635MB memory for this single page being open.

Hello. From time to time, when using firefox I find that firefox-bin process uses very high cpu process (on top command output it shows even more that 100% (i don't understand those specs)) It doesen't seem related to any specific website. I close tabs one by one and it remains the same. Even when closing firefox window, firefox-bin remains using 100% cpu for about 1 minute or so. Then a crash message appears, and I click send report.

Any suggestions accepted. cheers. Firefox 77.0.1 MX Linux 18.3
