I agree. It's painfull to see that you browse a website and it
consumes all your cpu cycles eventually. Since most of these scripts
are used to power adverts or some graphical stuff that really isn't
necessary, I use FF with the Adblock, NoScript, and
Adblock filters known ads, together with "Adblock Filter.G Updater"
you get a decent list of ad placing sites.
NoScript is configured to block all JavaScripts by default, and if I
think that a website doesn't behave as I would expect (e.g. doesn't
react on URL- oder buttonpresses in forms), I temporarily allow
scripts for this site. Sites I visit regularly that require JavaScript
get general permission.
Flashblock teaches embedded Flash-Objects "on demand"-behaviour by
replacing them with a play button. The Animation is only started after
this button is being pressed.
This puts an end to high CPU load...

Thank you for the tips, when I posted this in the list I already have
Adblock installed, but I still FF acts like a hungry pig.

The question now, is FF-linux runs faster than native FreeBSD FF?
