User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:32.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/32.0
Build ID: 20140830210550

Steps to reproduce:

- Flash a FxOS 2.0 build on the Peak device (tested with v2.0-2014-09-16.Gecko-cfc9070.Gaia-95314e2 and with v2.0-2014-09-22.Gecko-ea6971c.Gaia-8d7f2ac)
- Go to the homescreen
- Try to move an icon inside the homescreen

Actual results:

When moving the icon, the other icons are re-organized in real-time.
But this background re-organization is so slow that it freezes the display a few seconds.
In between, your icon has probably moved again, so you never know where you are going to drop it

Expected results:

It should be possible to easily drop your icon in the place you want it to be.
Either by improving the reorganization performance, or by disabling the realtime effect : only reorganize after the user dropped the icon
Things have improved a bit in the latest builds.
But it's still difficult to move the icons
Mass update: Resolve wontfix all issues with legacy homescreens.

As of 2.6 we have a new homescreen and having these issues open is confusing. All issues will block bug 1231115 so we can use that to re-visit any of these if needed.
