Re: firefox slow,jerky scrolling and misaligned pages while scrolling. Gnome3+Debian
It really seems to be a problem with the driver. I tested a Geforce 6600 GT (128 MB) with 173.14.35 and with 302.17 (Opensuse 11.4). There is a big difference in speed. Firefox is very slow and jerky with the old driver. With a Geforce 6600 it doesn't matter, as you can use a newer driver, but with older graphic cards in laptops (some Dell M60, Quadro FX Go 700) it's a problem. Those Dell M60 are nearly not useable (I tested a lot with different agp speeds, GlyphCache, InitialPixmapPlacement and so on), an old Dell X300 with Intel graphics works fine. So I think, the nvidia developers should try to fix the bug. Thank you.
