After the upgrade I noticed that menu rendering in Firefox was extremely slow. In many vBulletin based forums the rendering of forum menus would take 2-3 seconds. Also if I use the navigation arrows to scroll the page the scrolling takes place one line at a time. This behavior doesn't happen with IE7 on the same sites. Thought it might be just this computer. So I pulled the GFX card and put it in my testing system. Fresh install of Windows XP. Fresh install of FF. Same problems. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Obtain a 8800 based Nvida based GFX card and install it. 2. Visit a vBulletin based web forum. 3. Either use the forum menus or scroll using the navigation arrow. Actual Results: Very poor menu rendering times and scrolling one line at a time. Expected Results: Menus should render almost instantly. Scrolling should be a smooth as glass.
Unfortunately I don't have enough money to reproduce this bug at the moment... Do you have graphics drivers installed? The 8800 series require a different driver to the GeForce 7-series and below, you can obtain them at http://www.nvidia.com./content/drivers/drivers.asp .

And they are the correct drivers.
