I have checked many other sites to reproduce this "bug" and I can now
say that is should be considered a "show stopper". It appears that it's
related to the javascript performance (or AJAX or something similar) and

Another good example is any website that offer Ajax images such as:  http://www.worldofwarcraft.com/downloads/ssotd/
These images on any other machine should load very swiftly and smoothly. Especially with Firefox 3.0 (compared to 2.x).

They load EXTREMELY slow.  I dual boot WinXP on this machine and I can
compare the javascript performance and it's night and day. I have also
tried a Mac OS X box running Firefox 3.0 beta5 to further test it. One
of the huge improvements in Firefox 3 is obviously supposed to be its
performance (among other things). My iPhone is actually faster at this
point. This is a huge bug.

The package update today:  3.0~b5+nobinonly-0ubuntu2  has not changed
anything related to it.
