    I am not familiar with such a command(doesn't mean there isn't one).
    But, I did find this https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/pr...d-fix-problems
    Lots of diagnostic tools there.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    One way would be to disable your extensions one at a time to see which is causing the problem.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!

    Thx, the issue in my case is how to preciselly measure the cpu usage for each disabled plugin so i do not spend whole day and results are not precise or cant tell which plugin is the cause.
    Here is a feature request i have been linked to:
