Bug Description

Steps:
1. Open a terminal and run top command
2. Open midori beside the terminal
3. Open any website in midori
4. See the WCPU usage of midori in top

Observed behavior:
midori eats very high levels of WCPU usage.
If you open many websites, midori slows down and drag the desktop.

I'm using PC-BSD 9.1 i386 DVD LXDE Virtualbox

This issue may be related to Bug #1012721 somehow, which I reported earlier.
Try starting Midori with

  midori -a http://web-site-address

If it makes Midori work normal (with low CPU usage), this is the case.
Regards,

Hi. Thanks for your reply.
I got an error when doing midori -a http://web-site-address in PC-BSD
terminal emulator.
