I'll just comment that I have no performance problems with FF on F10
x86_64, except that it can take a while to start up and has sometimes
been known to suck cpu (possibly the Java plugin is doing this in my
case). This is KDE 4.1, Intel Core 2 Duo, 4GB of RAM (but it was the
same with 2GB) and onboard Intel video. I don't use Compiz. I do use
AdBlock, Flashblock and NoScript.
