Can you test with the latest nightly:

I'd say it is better than before, but still worse than FF 3.6.

Compare of ff 3.6 vs current nightly
Can you compare with hardware acceleration in prefs ticked vs unticked (found options -> advanced -> general). You'll need to restart Firefox before the change takes effect.

Turning hardware acceleration off fixes this.
Does this still occur on the latest nightly?

If so, could you paste the contents of the graphics section at the bottom of about:support please.
