Testing TB 60.0b2: Clicking "Manage Newsgroup Subscriptions" causes massive CPU churn and the app seems hung

While testing with TB 60.0b2, I noticed that if I try and subscribe to a 
newsgroup a la right-clicking of the news server and choosing 
"Subscribe" or clicking on a news server and clicking on "Manage 
Newsgroup Subscriptions" the CPU will spike and the app will appear hung 
but in fact it is doing something in the background. I let it sit for a 
good long time and it eventually brought up my listed newsgroups. Trying 
to subscribe to one caused the CPU to spike again and make the app 
appear to be hung.

I see that with my Usnet-News server (CPU went up to 33%), but not the 
Mozilla server.

I also see the JavaScript warning and have to the click "Continue" or 
"Stop" button.
