I'm using Ubuntu 16.04 and after the latest update I ran on Firefox, loading a webpage left me with a white screen/page in the browser. I removed Firefox, reinstalled, started it up and had the same results. After that, I removed the ~/.firefox folder, supposedly containing user and browser settings that are kept. This fixed the browser, but I noticed my laptop fan working at full speed. I opened the System Monitor and saw that a core is running @ 100%. I'm attaching two screen shots of this, opening 2 tabs (facebook and soundcloud) and keeping them open. After closing the browser the processor goes back to idle. I'm wondering whether someone could help guide me.

Best Regards

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

Hello

while I can't answer your question (I'm sure someone else can) I would like to ask if you are using Firefox as provided from Ubuntu or Mozilla (for which you can see more here)

it also appears it is a beta version is this correct? if this is the case could you test with a release version from here

Hi bygabyga and thanks for the reply. I followed your advice and got the installation from the ftp. After the usual setup, now I'm enjoying the awesome browser that I love {: P.S. New icon is amazing, I love looking at it. Thanks for your input
