Just saw it happen again: Xorg and Firefox pegging the CPU (over 45%
each) and Firefox slowing to a crawl.  As soon as the Xorg process
returned to normal (< 5% CPU), Firefox worked normally.  In this case
I only had one tab open to gmail.

In the past few days, however, there have been some updates.  And I
haven't experienced this behaviour since the updates.  I'd like to
believe it got fixed.
