Wolfrider writes: I noticed palemoon browser using 200% CPU on my Linux system at home today and saw this headline from El Reg. Tried using ' iptraf-ng ' in realtime and searching/following my Squid proxy logs, and no indicators of where it was coming from.

FIX: Installing the browser plugin "noscript" and bouncing Palemoon appears to have solved the issue.
