It is indeed Firefox. One of the threads had been running 66 minutes since I 
restarted Firefox this morning. (The desktop was rebooted by the UPS, which I 
have to replace, but the laptop, which is running Firefox, kept running.) I 
closed one of the windows and the load average went down. Why doesn't top 
show the total of all threads in a process?

Btw, I had to add "w" to the ps command to see the whole command line.
