This is bugrep interesting as it is a recent development for me -last
four weeks- as if a recent update has triggered it.

1. Ubuntu 9.04, not happy with 9.10 and I rolled the laptop back from that version in November, hence: a fairly recent root disk.
2. delays in menus, some apps, opening tabs, scrolling particularly bad, even when smooth scrolling turned off
3. tried some different ubuntu themes, no joy.

By opening a Tab I could trigger the event
3547 root      20   0  187m  46m  13m R 69.8  2.3 121:27.11 Xorg                         
27852 slo       20   0  243m 125m  27m S  7.3  6.2   1:54.76 firefox      

Single CPU, ATI Radeon, FF3.0.18. Moving up the 3.5 just created more problems with firefox.
driver is xserver-xorg-video-radeon-1:6.12.1-ubuntu

I'm assuming that its a firefox/ubuntu problem, what's interesting is
that it has arrived within the last few weeks. Planning to try the ati
fglrx driver to see if that makes the problem go away.
