I think it's a browser problem. I simply disabled plugin-container
(by setting dom.ipc.plugins.enabled to 'false' in about
restarted Iceweasel. Things are now _less_ sluggish, although not as
fast as I might expect. Now, instead of plugin-container using up 20%
CPU, firefox-bin is using about 30% MEM. I'm thinking of making
Chrome my default browser!
