70% CPU-Usage on notepad-plus-plus.org o_O
heater runs high.
cpu usage 70%.
i closed n++ page and cpu does down :)
Addons disabled: uMatrix, uBlock, Ghostery.
Addons not disabled: too much ;)
But these 3 are the most relevant i think confusing with online scripts.
hooo, now 80%…! >:(
See https://notepad-plus-plus.org/community/topic/15739/faq-desk-request-for-help-without-sufficient-information-to-help-you. Could you provide more infos please. If 7.5.9 see https://notepad-plus-plus.org/community/topic/16468/notepad-7-5-9-release, at the end about performance hits.
nothing to do with N++!
It is the website that causes trouble!
Disabling Slript with Addon uMatrix would help but then i cant read or write here.
So there is a scripting problem with your site.
Are you saying that the notepad-plus-plus.org website is making your browser use huge CPU cycles when you browse here?
I find that strange. I browse here every day using Firefox, and have never had Firefox spike in CPU usage when here. I occasionally come here in the Edge browser, and haven’t seen that happen there, either. I don’t use or have the Opera browser, but it would really surprise me if it couldn’t handle anything that this site throws at it.
You might want to try a plain-vanilla install of Opera with using no addons, and see if it still happens; and then try a plain-vanilla install of Firefox or Chrome or Edge and see if it happens. If it happens with plain Opera, and not with Firefox or Chrome or Edge, then you have a bug report that you can send to Opera. If it happens with all the browsers for you, then my guess is that you’ve been infected with malware or some other virus, or you’ve somehow been infected with some script (from some other site) that’s hijacked your browser, and it’s doing things in the background.
I had a similar problem, 20-40% CPU when in https://notepad-plus-plus.org/community, if I didn’t do anything. I find the culprit : Support Free Content (SFC) extension in Firefox for Allmusic.com. I disabled it, now the CPU-Usage when write this message is 4%.
My Firefox (Russian) is eating 50%. If I open two tabs, then 100% (Windows10_64, Linux), ABR plugin. I have a sensor in the tray (AnVir Task Manager, Multi Core System Monitor)
Evernote Web Clipper extension is the culprit. Disable and try.
