    Firefox 56 versus pending FireFox 57

    Beginning Rant

    I am using the default browser, firefox. I never bothered to switch.
    I use Gnome, and an extension titled freon. Freon was showing my cpu temperature as 70C, for a system in which the most I was doing was browsing.

    Firefox was churning up 14% of the cpu core 1. Thats rediculus.

    I downloaded Firefox 57 (not yet fully shaken out ) and it ran the cpu at 3% to zero (if idle).
    Hopefully FF 57 will be made available in Fedora ASAP.

    I am using Chromium Browser. Now my cpu core 1 is at 51C, a 20 percent drop, and yes
    CPU does not show if the browser is not doing anything.

    Privacy Badger within FF56 is being dispatched too often, I think that FF needs to review its dispatching algorithm for plugins.

    Firefox was churning up 14% of the cpu core 1.
    Bit less here apparently. It's a lxde system.
    Code:
    [tom@owl ~]$ rpm -q firefox
    firefox-56.0-4.fc26.x86_64
    [tom@owl ~]$ ps aux |grep -e firefox -e CPU
    USER       PID %CPU %MEM    VSZ   RSS TTY      STAT START   TIME COMMAND
    tom      1251  6.0 12.4 3106672 499896 pts/7  Sl+  11:24   0:56 /usr/lib64/firefox/firefox

    FWIW, ff 56 gobbles up ram on windows 10 and becomes unstable after extended use. I can only hope mozilla fixes firefox in the next version, I understand 56 had some major under-the-hood changes, perhaps there are some bugs shaking out.
