The scrolling in FF3 is extremely slow on some pages (for example addons.mozilla.org).
Firefox 2 from the oficial repository does the same things smoothly, so I'm back to it until I find a solution.
Does anyone experience the same behavior? Found a fix?
I installed FF3 from the tarball from mozilla.org website. I unpacked it to /usr/lib/firefox-3, renamed original /usr/bin/firefox and created a soft link firefox->/usr/lib/firefox-3/firefox.
I also backed up and then removed my original profile from ~/.mozilla to allow creation of the new one by FF3.
Using Fedora 8, KDE, Nvidia 8800 GTS with 169.12 drivers from nvidia.com, Compiz-fusion 0.7.5 from Leigh's repository.
All other things except scrolling seem to work fine in FF3 (it does render pages faster etc).
p.s. Disabling compiz does improve things a bit, but not much :-/
