This is actually a upstream (firefox) problem present on the Windows version of Firefox. I have noticed on my fiance's computer (hp dv7 running Windows 7) that it was very slow in operation (DOM operations) after page loading is complete. I figured out that unchecking "Use Hardware Acceleration when Available" solved the issue. Alas, TenFourFox has the same problem. I found that disabling this option improved usability by a far degree on my Powerbook G4 1.67..Please let others know that use TenFourFox.

Again, just to re-iterate the problem I am describing is NOT a problem with TenFourFox, but in the upstream Firefox codebase.

    I appreciate the message, but that checkbox actually relates to using the graphics card to accelerate certain operations, which TenFourFox actually doesn't support. As a result, the checkbox actually doesn't do anything in the current version. It is present in case we get some variety of hardware acceleration operational in the future. I don't have an explanation for the difference you state you notice.

    If I actually misunderstand what you're referring to, a Bugzilla number would be very helpful.
