    Default Firefox is consuming 100% of my 4 CPUs

    Hi,

    I just open the new Firefox quantum and my CPU consumes 100%. Why? This is without tabs open, just the app.

    42.3 with gnome.

    Thanks.

    Searching better for the reasons, the problem was the tracker AGAIN.

    I had uninstalled it but for some reason was installed in the system again. This bug with tracker is annoying.

    what is the tracker is it some sort of addon or a 3rd party app?
    as LEAP is on ESR by default did you get Firefox 57 from the mozilla repo or did you get a binary blob from https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/

    No, tracker is the local indexing system - long known to be a CPU hog
    while it catalogs local files.

    Code:
    ******

    zypper rm tracker
    zypper al tracker

    ******

    Thatshould keep it from being installed again.
