Q: FirefoxCP Isolated Web Content CPU overdrive

Dave BensonJust recently, MathOverflow has started to cause Firefox to use massive CPU resources, at least on my machine. In particular, I'm on a Macbook Pro 2.3 GHz 8-Core Intel Core i9 running Ventura 13.4.1 and Firefox 116.0.2. Some MathOverflow posts cause "FirefoxCP Isolated Web Content" to consume 100...

I wonder whether you might have bigger chance of getting some useful response on Super User or Ask Different rather then here.

@MartinSleziak I'm seeing the same behavior on FF on Windows. The FF process permanently spikes to around 30% (i.e. 1 core on a 4-core system) when I open the example page listed in the comments.

I suppose it's useful to know that this isn't specific to Mac.
