Default Native Firefox performance vs Firefox in VirtualBox

Why is Win7 Firefox (8.0.1) inside of VirtualBox on Linux sooooo much smoother than just Firefox (9.0.1) running natively on Linux? You'd think that it would be the other way around!!! openSuSE 12.1 x64 and nvidia 290.10 driver. Just scrolling this Post New Thread page lags like crazy, which is not present in the VirtualBox instance one virtual screen down. It's a triple-head rotated 1200x1600 setup with Xinerama. GTX 550Ti + 6600GT, 3.8GHz cpu, 4GB ram, 128GB ssd.
