For the cocky pope .....
I believe I've finally found the breakthrough for my problem of getting locked up on this excessively boring site.
It appears to be virtually dead now ...perhaps I've arrived too late to save it?
Anyhoo, this problem has been bugging me for months now and there's no clear solution to it. I would go to that site and IMMEDIATELY my Firefox browser would lock up to 100% usage, leaving me sit, as helpless as a duck in a pond without paddles.
I searched and searched but found nothing solid. Nothing I tried would work .... until tonight.
I was pretty sure that this problem was related to animated gif content ( and I believe I even turned it off before but it made no difference). Well tonight it did! I'm not sure if this will be a lasting solution or not but it's working like magic right now, anyway.
(Just as a tidbit of trivia ..... if anyone IS experiencing such a problem on any site, just hit the Escape button -which turns off animated gifs- and if your CPU usage drops immediately, animated gifs ARE the problem.)
For some reason, Firefox HAS this weird vulnerability which has been in effect for years now and has STILL never been properly addressed by developers. It's enough to make Steve Ballmer sick...
