Firefox scrolling lag while using Compiz

with 4 comments

I’m using fglrx driver now and have enabled Compiz. I’m not using smooth scrolling in Firefox but found that default Firefox scrolling is lagging in Compiz. Here is a little solution.

If you have XGL installed (xserver-xgl), go and remove it, it lags even more. Then open your xorg.conf for editing. Alt+F2 and type gksu gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf.

Find this line in device section Driver "fglrx", after this line put new lines:
Option "AccelMethod" "EXA"
Option "MigrationHeuristic" "greedy"

I have other lines too, that can help in video rendering:
Option "VideoOverlay" "on"
Option "OpenGLOverlay" "on"

Save file and then logout and login back (restart xorg server). That should help.
