Since installing the new Firefox version, I've been having issues with it hanging and hesitating. Task Manager shows one of it's function using 50% CPU (see attached screenshot). Has anyone else encountered this?

 

My system OS id Windows 7 - 64 bit.

I stumbled on this suggestion on a Mozilla page:

 

go to the firefox menu ≡ > options > privacy & security panel and under permissions check the setting to prevent accessibility services from accessing your browser.

FF has ability to store lot of data that's why it can behave like this.

You can try to use GC for the future.
