Default Scrolling explanation please

Hi All,

I was browsing Wolfram Alpha today and noticed that scrolling is horribly slow in firefox.

http://www.wolframalpha.com/

I'm on Ubuntu Intrepid running on a Dell M1330 with an 8400Gs.

Scrolling the same site is smoother when using an Windows Xp virtual machine and internet explorer 8!

I'm just wondering why scrolling in Linux is so terrible in general. Is it a driver issue or an Xorg issue?

Thanks,

T
