Sub_title: Jumpy, slow, uneven scrolling.
 

I am using a pet version of Firefox 3.5 in a frugal install of puppy 4.3.1, and have noticed an extremely slow, jumpy response when scrolling at the puppylinux.org website. This condition occurs also at a few other sites which I have visited, and wondered if there is a configuration option and/or addition that could be made to eliminate this behaviour. Neither Seamonkey v.1.1.18 nor Opera v.10.01 demonstrate this aberrant condition at the puppy site. Our family's home computer is a Dell Dimension 4500s, sporting an Intel Pentium 4 processor and 772MB RAM. Thanks for any insight.

What screen resolution are you running at? Firefox 3.5 can be a bit of a resource hog unfortunately. I looked up the specs on your Dell, it appears to come with an Intel embedded graphics chip. The performance of these is on the low end of the spectrum.

Also, where did you get the Firefox from?

*edit*I wonder if installing the xorg_xorg_dri...pet from the Puppy Installer might help? You will have to restart your X session from the Menu if you do install it.

The thread has some updated XORG display drivers and configuration tips. Good luck!
