TenFourFox 17.0.5 on Tiger PPC here, on a 12-inch Powerbook G4.

Go to github, sign in on some project and start a bug report or comment on something. Observe that the lag time between a key press and seeing that letter appear on the screen is about 3 seconds.

I see no similar effects for other sites like this tenderapp text entry box, for instance.

    Is 20 any better?

    No, it's not.

    Does this occur in other browsers?

    No, not in other browsers. The only ones I have tried are Safari (on 10.4.11PPC) and "Tiger Webkit".

    I have the same behavior in Tenfourfox 20 and Tenfourkit (and all other browsers using the system Webkit as I use it as an updated framework). Github comments work without lag in Camino 2.1.2.
