Think others have had this problem before but their solutions don't seem to work for me.

I get pretty high CPU usage with the default skin in Firefox, around 50% on a dual core 2.5GHz PC. Everything is fine in IE or with the classic skin. I've disabled all my extensions and the problem remains.

lead me to disable Firefox prefetch and delete my prefetch files, but again no luck.
