100% CPU usage with Tor Browser in Whonix

Tor Browser seems to be using 100% CPU with Whonix after suspending it in Qubes OS. (extensions.torbutton.display_circuit was set to false)

strace of that firefox.real process:

Tor Browser Consumes 100% CPU after Clock Sync or Suspend/Resume?

I guess you already saw that.

This would require Generic Bug Reproduction.

https://www.whonix.org/wiki/Free_Support_Principle

Is this reproducible outside of Whonix?

In other words, is the reproducible in Tor Browser a (Qubes) Debian (App Qubes / VM)?
