November 3, 2008 Slow scrolling on firefox – compiz fusion
I have been experiencing slow scrolling on firefox for a long time, but never really tackled it.
Today I was messing in the compiz-fusion forums looking for something to solve the godamn slow fullscreen, and noticed someone complaining about the scrolling instead.
Adam, a moderator, said the following:
“The only thing I can recommend is to either switch to the open source drivers or to downgrade your fglrx drivers to something in the 8.3* range and use Xgl. compiz is notoriously slow on fglrx + AIGLX (particularly firefox scrolling), and there’s nothing that can be done other than waiting for AMD to improve their AIGLX support in the drivers.”
*sigh*, I mean for fuck’s sake. I’ll try and have a look at the open source driver since I’ve got better things to do but don’t really want too.
