    Lately FireFox is starting to use 99% of CPU, (Task Manager). This is after I've been o/l for just a few minutes. More often than not, I have to shut it down with Task Manager & re-start it. This is happening with FF29x & FF52x.

    Any ideas??

    Disable all your extensions. If that fixes it try reenabling them one at a time to find the one causing it.
