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
is TERRIBLE.

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.
