After using Firefox for a while, it starts using an excessive amount of CPU. It seems to happen most after posting in a forum. I have tried both the latest stable as well as the unstable versions, the source as well as the binary versions, even tried clearing the profile and starting from scratch. I also have another Gentoo system with the same problem.

Any particular website (trying to rule out a wayward javascript applet...)?
Will it do it on a blank page too?

It seems to do it on any website. It happens more often on forums.

Problem resolved itself after updating system. Not sure exactly which package was broken, but anyone else having the same problem should first try an update.
