Public bug reported:
After updating to Firefox 13.0.1 (13.0.1+build1-0ubuntu0.11.10.1), the
browser immediately starts using large amounts of CPU time (50 to 100%),
even if I start the browser in "safe mode" with plugins and other
features disabled. CPU usage remains consistently high as I browse
around to other places.
My home page is "about:startpage", the Ubuntu standard.
This should not happen. CPU usage should be at or near zero upon
loading a simple page like that.
