Hi Everyone,

I have Fedora 20. Whenever I log on to Facebook, the CPU usage jumps up to nearly 80% and the CPU fan spins like hell. Has anyone experienced the same?

Any idea?

Do you have flash installed? If so, does the CPU usage increase if you disable it?

Hi, Thanks for answering. Could you please let me know how I can check and disable it?

In firefox, go to Tools -> Addons then Plugins.
