Game slows down when it's in the background

When I run Cookie Clicker in a tab that's not the active tab, the game slows to a crawl. For example, if I click on a Golden Cookie, get a frenzy, and then switch tabs, 5-10 minutes later I click back and the frenzy is still active. Today I accidentally opened a 2nd instance of Cookie Clicker, and the cookie count was several hundred quintillion more than what was in the open tab -- even cookie production in offline mode is more than having it active in a background tab. What could be the problem here?

    I believe the problem is that you are playing on a literal potato. Try upgrading to an orange for Christmas.

    have you clicked the "defocus" button in the settings menu of the option tab?

    Tried it, but it doesn't seem to change anything...

    Not that I really need to defocus setting, but when I tried it there was no discernible change for me either. I suspect it may not work with every operating system.
