I'm seeing this too, though not necessarily in the same circumstances.
With Firefox 1.0.4 on Linux, after a small amount of browsing, Firefox
will suddenly start using as much CPU as possible and the memory use
shoots up as well. I normally end up force quitting Firefox. I agree
that it's probably something to do with the extension scanning for
linked data - it doesn't happen when Piggy Bank is uninstalled.
