The version of Firefox in the 10.10 repos seems to perform pretty poorly on the HTML5 test. Why is this? Is there something I can do about that? Does it matter?

What is "poorly"? Give a number. Also note that (as far as I know anyway) the Firefox version in the 10.10 repo still is Firefox 3.6 and not Firefox 4 (which is still in beta). I'd advice you to add the version number of your firefox to your question (Help -> About). – Ward Muylaert Feb 1 '11 at 17:58

Because Firefox 3.6 doesn’t support all the html5 specifications, no browser today does. Look at which browser supports what features. No it doesn’t matter a whole lot, html5 is still in the development stages.
