    That can happen with javascript in any browser - no way to tell what's
    happening without more information. I'd try closing tabs one by one to
    see which tab you're using is driving the utilization up, and from there,
    diagnose the specific page you're browsing.

    If you're certain the problem is browser-related (with Tor, there is a lot more which is going on),
    You can further analyze any web browser or content issues by invoking Developer tools, with all browsers you can find in the app menu, but can typically be invoked with CTL-J.

    You can look at stuff like time and resources used to download each page component, inspect specific code blocks, etc... Probably far more than what any ordinary User knows to make of, but can play around with to the extent of their knowledge.

    I'd suggest installing the No Coin extension to stop miners...
    OpenSuse 15.1, Plasma 5.17
    Gigabyte GA-Z87X-UD4H Mobo; 16G Ram
    Intel Core i5-4570 Processor (6M Cache, up to 3.60 GHz)

    In fact, the bug was in the tracker, which was consuming A LOT. I just remove it.
