I wonder why this site uses so much CPU capacity?

Today it got even worser, up to 80% CPU and constantly 50-80% CPU processing, and I am still on the Home-page you land on right after login? I have not clicked on one of my countries yet, and my Dell Precision M6400 already have big troubles.

What needs to be processed/calculated constantly on the Home-page?

When I close the browser, CPU immidiately relaxes.

Firefox 49.0.2

Simcountry definitely doesn't need that much horsepower to run.
I ran some tests with a variety of PC's we have available and couldn't replicate this problem.

Could you please try a different browser and see if that solves the problem?

Could be some type of malware. Try running malwarebytes or similar.

Thanks for reply.

I use spybot, dont know if that one could take it, but I try malwarebytes...

I used IE8 before (and that was much faster than Firefox), but after your security update couple of months ago now, I couldnt use IE anymore (some certification-issue).

System: WinXP / Firefox 49.0.2

I'm afraid we don't have a machine running WinXP and can't guarantee support for a version of Internet Explorer from 2009.

Firefox and modern IE versions don't have this problem.
Could you please try the Chrome browser?

Well I have FF, on a modern laptop running Win 8.1 I can tell you the issue is definitely with firefox. It eats up insane amounts of CPU for no known reason. Simply close and restart and the problem goes away. For some reason it has trouble dumping the cache or something. I run into this problem with multiple tabs and say after watching youtube. Cache is full instantly and won't dump even when you close tabs. Same thing FF takes a year to load the general section of the forum.

We haven't been able to find a specific issue with FF that is caused by Simcountry. I suggest using a more lightweight browser
