I've noticed that FireFox-bin always hovers around 15% CPU usage; even when I'm not doing anything. Is this normal? I've disabled all addons and themes, and I'm running the latest version.

I love FireFox, but it sucks for battery usage. My remaining battery increases by about 45 minutes to an hour by using Safari instead of Firefox.
