Re: Firefox Running Slow in Linux

I know I'll probably get hazed by this already saturated question, but I haven't found any solid answers to my issue from the archives. I'm running Fedora 10 x86_64 and loving the "adventure" of running an 64 bit system. I'm also running Firefox 3.0.x (x86_64), but I've noticed that it's not very smooth compared to it running on a Windows machine and I'm little confused why.

It's more the scroll bar than anything else. It's something small, but it's ruining the surfing experience and I'm a little embarrassed to let other people use it on my desktop. I don't want to give Linux a bad name and these folks are primarily Windows/MAC users. So; their experience with using Firefox on my system is a tainted one.

I've tried running Swiftfox, but I haven't gotten it to load (that's another issue) so I'm kind of stuck with Firefox.

My experience is that compiz has a MAJOR negative impact on both Firefox and Thunderbird.

This is with the commercial nvidia driver/module, and with the nv driver.

Running with just metacity on the same drivers is nearly flawless.

Good Luck.
