  Very heavy CPU usage for Facebook in Firefox

Status in firefox package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  When a tab with the Facebook home page is active in Firefox, Firefox's
  CPU usage shoots through the roof. It had been very bad for a while,
  but recently it has got worse, now sticking at almost a constant 100%
  on one core (of a 1.5GHz Core2Duo), as opposed to around 5-20% when
  the page is backgrounded or closed.

  I cannot reproduce this problem in Opera. I have also read reports on
  forums that say this problem does not occur in Chrome.
