This is a dup. Adding DUPEME/qawanted.
What are the specs of the machine are you on? Does this happen for you on trunk ( ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/nightly/latest )? To Editor--it sounds like the other slow typing bugs but the 1.1b (not slow)->1.1 (slow) mystery means it might be more specific.
I think what's happening here is that the auto-complete timer code is interfering with paint dispatching. This problem was exposed by the async reflow/painting changes made by bug 141900.
This sounds like it will be made better when Kevin lands his change to make reflow/paint events not get starved out by user events.

I don't think it's a regression of that bug, which I remember as genuinely slow typing, as in the text cursor would advance maybe twice a second. This problem is that the text cursor advances with typing, but the characters are delayed in showing up.
