User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:6.0a2) Gecko/20110702 Firefox/6.0a2
Build ID: 20110702042005

Steps to reproduce:

It's been like that since Aurora 6 got released. I didn't report it because I switched back to 5.0 (stable) but today I just redownloaded Aurora latest build and nothing has changed. As soon as I use a custome theme (not a persona skin, but a full theme), moving FF window gets a bit choppy. The "effect" is not huge, but very obvious if you compare with FF5 where the issue doesn't exist. 

 The issue occurs whether I use themes like Nasa Night Launch or Blackfox (or any of the series), and stops as soon as I go back to Aurora default theme (or to a persona skin, not surprising as persona skins are pretty light in general).

 Could have been my hardware, but again, I don't have this problem in FF5. Thanks.

just adding that hardware acceleration is constantly disabled here.

... also wanted to mention, I gave a shot to aurora 7a2 yesterday, the issue I described seems to be getting worse with every new build, starting with 6.0 and later. I might have to stick to 5.0 if there's no solution... and I don't like that... not my style to run outdated software. Okay could also be that my hardware becomes really outdated now... but to the extend of not being supported by Firefox, I have doubts...

Is this the add-on you are referring to?

Does the issue occur if you do the following:

Create a new profile
Install only the nasa-night-launch add-on
Disable hardware acceleration
Test scrolling

I tested that already, just the skin (and yes that's the add-on I meant) and got the same result (new profile, no extension except that theme). Again like I said I gave this theme just as an example as that's the one I mainly use, but I have the same problem with any other "full theme" on FF6/7 (full theme as opposed to default theme or persona skin).

 Oh yeah, the issue is not with scrolling, but with moving FF window, just moving it. 

ps: concerning hardware acceleration, it's always disabled here since FF4 already, as I got a window resizing issue this time when HWA is on... so I just gave up HWA long ago; HWA being constantly off, it's not bound to the theme issue I describe here.
(based on other bug reports, pretty sure logos is gone but will ask anyway)
Does this still reproduce for you when using a current version?
