Bad Boy Ubiquity?

Issue #62 closed

Since Firefox has this newfangled performance analyzer (about:performance) I just gave it a spin. This is my setup:
Firefox 64bit @ SSD
5 pinned tabs + 8 "normal" tabs (nothing fancy, i.e. no extensive javascript bloaters or videos running in the background)

I started Firefox and gave it 60 seconds to completely load all pages and go to "rest".
This is the result:

Somehow, Ubiquity always seems to claim a minor amount of CPU, despite the fact that I had been idling for about a minute when I took the screencap.
What is your experience? Do you think this is just error of margin in the performance measuring process? Or is Ubiquity using 1% CPU at all times, no matter if it's just idling in the background? What could be causing the constant CPU usage?

    In the firefox all the plugins (that are little bit greater as hello-world) consume small CPU "last".
    This goes among others to the polling event loop (e. g. onkeydown by ubiquity).

    In the reality the CPU-usage is much fewer, but I think that 1% is the smallest unit in this performance log.
    I've opened exactly one tab and checked the performance log. There I see 4 plugins with 1% per plugin (so 4% total). But according to the task manager firefox-process consumes only 0.0% - 0.2% the whole time.

    I think the issue can be closed because irrelevant.
