    Default After Getting compiz to work, 2d is very slow IE scrolling in firefox

    Maybe i just have too old of a machine that just can't handle it anymore or maybe my GPU sucks or maybe it's fglrx.... I don't know, so i post to see what anyone else thinks.

    Right now my system is a AMD Athlon 64 3400+(socket 754) w/2gig ram and 1950xagp pro 512mb sapphire.

    The problem:
    Scrolling in firefox is slow. It's like running vesa and "paints" while i scroll with only a few tabs open
    when i grab an unactive window it takes a second before it draws me moving it.

    Here is my xorg.conf
    Code:
    #Section "Modes"
    #  Identifier   "Modes[0]"
    #EndSection
    #Section "Modes"
    #  Identifier "Modes[1]"
    #EndSection
