I think I am entitled to ask, if not demand improved 2D support, as well as a response from someone in charge, not a local smartass...
ah, and now we are down to insulting people?

hm, I don't use firefox, but I did not have scrolling problems in the past nor now with Konqueror. And the 171.0X driver even made it better ....

About PSU maybe you rights. Hangs heavy in the system more frequently. For example when many usb devices connected.
that is certainly a symptom that warrants a closer investigation.

Most PSUs out there suck. Even expensive brands.
For example this test:

8 PSUs, 4 were bad.

http://www.tomshardware.com/de/Netzt...chte-1162.html

32% bad

...

PSUs are a VERY important and still almost always overlooked component.
