    Hey guys, when I'm using the browser (specifically, Facebook), it seems to lock up because of high CPU usage. I imagine it's JavaScript or CSS that's causing it. However, I never had this happen on my old Droid X; I used to use Facebook all day on my Droid X since the app was so slow. I'm not loading anything crazy to cause high CPU usage.

    Anyone else having this problem? If you check out my screenshots, you can see it's a fairly simple page and it's taking 50% CPU usage. I'm guessing 50% CPU means one core is running at 100%.

    Try another browser and see if that browser does it.

    I tried Opera but I can't force it to the "Touch" interface of m.facebook.com. So I can't duplicate the problem.

    I just tried Dolphin Browser and it locks up Dolphin Browser as well. I guess it's Facebook and not the Android Browser.

    I noticed it happens when goto the comments on a post, not on the News Feed or your Profile. I'm going to wipe the phone for good measure but I think it's bad JavaScript or something.

    I just found it odd that it worked perfectly fine several days ago on my old Droid X. O_o

    I reset the phone. Didn't think it would help and it didn't.

    Wow, this is weird you mention this because I almost never use Facebook but when I do I use the browser because I don't want any Facebook integration nor passwords saved. Anywho, well tonight I noticed *exactly* what you've experienced. Browsing is fine, but the instant I try to comment it locks up and I have to hit the home button then go into App Manager and force close. I've had this with Dolphin but then tried the built in Samsung browser and had the same problem. I was about to install the FB app but cancelled because I use it on my phone so infrequently. Weird for sure.

    Thanks for getting back to me. At least I know I'm not doing something stupid. I'm pretty sure it's a buggy scripting that's causing it. I'm also pretty sure it's not hardware (it's too high level to be) or the browser (happens with both Android/Samsung Browser and Dolphin).

    I"ll submit a report to Facebook. I appreciate a lot for confirming and duplicating the problem!
