High CPU Consumption Rated 2 out of 5 stars
This is a great extension but it loads the CPU way too much. After having Firefox using the CPU at (at least) 30% all the time I started investigating by disabling and re-enabling all extensions one by one. As a results, I identified that Priv3 was responsible of using around 30% of the CPU at all time.
I am on Firefox 14.0.1 on Ubuntu 12.04. The problem is however also probably present in earlier versions of Firefox (but I didn't investigate that at the time).
High CPU usage is strange. Could you confirm that the observation was for a specific web page or across browser sessions ? I've been using Priv3 for over a year and never observed any significant CPU usage. My configuration is similar, i.e. FFx 14+ and Ubuntu 10.04 LTS.
