About a month ago, my computer was infected with a virus. I used MBAM to get rid of it and everything was fine except when using my browser. I use Firefox and, upon getting rid of the virus, it was noticeably slower. When I first open Firefox, everything is fine but, as time goes on, its CPU Usage increases until it's in the 90s and pages begin to load a lot slower. I can continue to close and reopen Firefox to temporarily fix things but it's an inconvenience. Any help fixing this is greatly appreciated.

When I use Safe Mode, Firefox maintains its speed but it still shows that Firefox is running almost 100 percent CPU Usage.

May be a good idea to visit the Malware Forum. You could have malware responsible that is causing the slow down
