Hi,

I experience a very slow response time (and high cpu usage) for
firefox in debian sid these days.

I use the 62.0.3 version and the latency is particularly present at
the startup. I have to wait few seconds before being able to enter
text in the address bar.

I tried to reset (install new profile) firefox and launch it in safe
mode (ie without extensions). No improvements.

Are other users of sid experiencing the same behavior ?

I'm using Firefox Quantum (62.0.3) on Stretch. Works just fine.
Responsive. Very Little CPU usage.  What does Top show is using the cpu?


Top shows several threads with high cpu usage such as :

PID USER PR NI VIRT RES SHR S %CPU %MEM TIME+ COMMAND
