I have a website, i wanted to show it to my dad and has a PC with ubuntu 10.04 on it. When i showed my website to him in Firefox 3.6, his computer got realy realy slow, not only with loading the background image, but also with the rest (for example: Starting up another programm). But when i showed my website on google chrome (also on his ubuntu PC) it loaded realy fast.

Reproducible: Always

1. Open Firefox in Ubuntu 10.04
2. Go to
3. Then you see that the background image loads realy slow
Actual Results:

Load the background fast, and save the background in his cash.

It was just the new firefox 3.6. No themes, no add-ons, ...
