Comment (by speedtester):

 I'm having high cpu usage with version 9.0.1 only when using a profile
 with torlauncher.prompt_at_startup and start_tor set to false, to access
 clearnet or other proxies.
 Tried setting versioncheck_enabled to false, it helped once, but maybe
 I've changed something else too.
 Since ever then, I can't figure out what setting helped, as I can't fix
 the other profiles.
 I've figured out the below 2 threads are the hoggers:

 Hope it helps.
