EDIT:
This only happens for ~2s at a time. It's an annoyance, and it means I have to close WF all the time if I want to do anything of leisurely activity.

Unfortunately, yes, and it continues to happen -- even when I have only one tab open (right after a fresh start of Waterfox). It's so frustrating, it's all but unusable, and at the suggestion of another commenter, I've had to resort to Cyberfox, which doesn't have the issue.

I'm really hoping this gets fixed soon, as Waterfox has been my go-to browser for a while now. But if an update/patch for this is going to take as long as the last update/patch, I'm going to have to walk the plank :/ (for now).

I don't understand how this problem can be so rampant with users yet I don't experience it.

From what I gather, I should be experiencing CPU spikes but I don't.

The only major difference I can see is that I use Windows 8....?

ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/19.0/index.html says

Thanks for your interest in Firefox 19.0

We aren't quite finished qualifying Firefox 19.0 yet.


But obviously it's very close.

for anyone that wants to see the changelog for firefox 19:
http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/19.0/releasenotes/

to be fair, update isn't that "big" besides the pdf viewer now being available by default. But still a update is a update.

I don't see any mention of a CPU spike bug...?

That's because it happens only with Waterfox?

I guess so. In that case, it eliminates a ton of possibilities.

Must be a problem related to the compiler or a flag / option that is enabled in Waterfox but not Firefox.

Hm. Using Firefox on my laptop (it's a laptop I partly use for work so I try to keep nonstandard software off of it) and as far as CPU spikes go? They're there but they don't seem to really affect usability. (laptop = Core i5 430M, which is dual core with HT)

people said it wasn't happening after the 18.0.2 update (however alex hasn't compiled a 18.0.2 version of waterfox so can't really test.) whether its accurate or not that it stopped happening is beyond me. (in the 18.0.2 update it mentions fixing flash issues as well as some other bugs)
