Now I am really curious about Flash 10.1 uses 90%+ CPU

I responded to the thread entitled "Flash 10.1 uses 90%+ CPU" by saying:
"In any case, I get the same problem you describe when I simply
do a restart after installation. I have found, on the other
had, that if I do a full shutdown and a cold boot my CPU and
Memory utilization drops back to normal."
The OP tried and it did not help him solve his problem.
The re-booting solution has not been an one-off thing that might have
worked by accident. I have been using it through at least 2 Fedora
versions and probably 10-15 upgrades. After a simple re-start my
Firefox shoots up to about 90% CPU usage and shows 100% memory use.
When I close down and reboot, FireFox drops to 0% to 10% usage with less
than 50% memory usage.
I have an Intel Core 2 Duo Processor with 2 Gb memory.
Why would rebooting vs restarting make a difference? Any suggestions?
Fedora 12, Gnome 2.28
Evo.2.28, Emacs 23.1.1
