Performance on Linux FF2
It looks like there is a performance issue on FF2 on Linux. The HelloWorld dialog animation drags, is jumpy, and has a lot of flicker on that platform. I cross checked this with IE6 on windows and FF2 on Mac and it was nice and smooth there. It is completely non-functional in konqueror (which surprised me because of the khtml base). So, I can't confirm whether it is specific to my box or not (though i did restart FF2 just to be sure it had not built up a huge memory pool).
Just thought you would want to know.
I attached a firebug profile.

You were right. The native driver(ati) was loading and working in 2d mode, but DRI for 3d was not. An upgrade of the driver so that 3d direct rendering would work seems to have fixed the problem. It's interesting, as a side note, that 3d rendering is being used for yui/ff stuff since it is a 2d env.
Thanx for the help.
