This is ff 13.0.1 on x86_64 fedora 17.

Any clues? Anyone see anything similar?
50% !!!???
Huh.... consider yourself LUCKY!
On my old unicore amd64 (3.7GHz "equivalent :) :) /smirk/)
it escalates  sometimes to 95% of cpu.

top tends to be confusing that way.
Note this line from my machine at a time it said FF was at 87.8%:
Cpu(s): 13.6%us, 33.7%sy, 0.0%ni, 52.5%id, 0.0%wa, 0.0%hi, 0.2%si, 0.0%st

That was really 87.4% of the 13.6% user time that was consumed.

in <kernel source>/include/linux/taskstats.h
The comment reads:
        /* cpu "virtual" running time
         * Uses time intervals seen by the kernel i.e. no adjustment
         * for kernel's involuntary waits due to virtualization.
* Value is cumulative, in nanoseconds, without a corresponding count
         * and wraps around to zero silently on overflow
