I have Ubuntu 12.10 64-bit version running Firefox 23.0 and my websites render significantly slower than if I run Firefox on Windows and slower than Chrome on my computer. I have installed the proper drivers from ATI and I have also tried:

  • Creating a new Firefox profile.
  • Reinstalling graphics drivers.
  • Used bleachbit to clear all that had anything to do with Firefox.
  • Purged Firefox and re-installed it.

If I check hardware acceleration in Firefox it says I have hardware acceleration from my graphics card yet when I run a website with lots of javascript and ajax calls it all renders a bit slow. Trying to run HTML5 games I get about half the fps that I get with Chrome on the same computer.
