Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 446370
Slow scrolling with compiz
Last modified: 2008-05-19 05:56:05 EDT
Description of problem:
while scrolling a webpage by mousewheel or scrollbars in firefox 3 beta 5 with
enabled desktop effects (compiz) the content isn't redrawn/scrolled smoothly.
instead its like stutter.
with fedora 8 the scrolling is smooth on the same computer (p4 2.4 GHz with
intel 865G chipset).
Steps to Reproduce:
1. enable desktop effects
2. start firefox
3. open a page which is longer than the visible space of firefox
smooth scrolling works with fedora 8.
OpenOffice and other applications work like expected.
I'm seeing this as well (lenovo T60 w/ Intel 945GM) after upgrading to F9.
Also, maybe a different issue, but smooth scrolling is also quite jumpy in Gmail
(even using metacity). I suppose this could be Gmail's fault, but it wasn't
happening in F8.
I think this is a duplicate of bug 444328
