Isisombululo esikhethiwe

The problem disappeared, maybe due to a snap update or maybe due to a reboot. I'm back to normal "CPU load" again. And the RDD process is not running anymore.

Try downloading another copy of Firefox and run it from the folder. Do not sign into your Firefox account and see if you have the same issue.
