- I've tried Firefox on Linux and OSX. Both show the problem. Safari works fine. Haven't checked IE yet.--Brian JacksonOn Mar 2, 2007, at 10:02 AM, Nicolas Doye wrote:
- Ah -- that may be the problem.
Firefox under Linux and OSX tends to be slow (especially under Linux).
Try though I might, I've never found a good technical explanation as
Firefox/Windows will crawl at 1FPS in Firefox/Linux on the same laptop.
Anyhow, I think that the moral of the story is just that the browser
can't keep up/redraw fast enough to make the effect seamless. I did a
quick profile of your code, and nothing is running abnormally slowly
or being called more often than I'd expect. I think this is just one
of those cross-browser/cross-OS issues that pop up every now and then.
In related news, does anybody here have an explanation for why Firefox
can be so much slower on non-Windows operating systems?

- Well, it wouldn't bother me if someone else didn't have the same effect working.See this url that works, but not using YUI:--Brian JacksonOn Mar 2, 2007, at 12:44 PM, randomjuju wrote:
- Seems to work fine on Firefox 1.5 under Linux (Fedora Core 6 on Core Duo Laptop with standard Intel graphics card).
Perhaps I'm not fussy enough!. (Although I did get two pop-ups warning about things being undefined).

- Actually I switched it to have a fixed background for the div in everything except IE. So it has the desired effect (and isn't sluggish in Firefox anymore). But it feels kind of dirty playing tricks like that.I guess I should thank everyone that looked at the problem for me. Hopefully I'll be releasing the finished product before too long.--Brian JacksonOn Mar 3, 2007, at 12:22 PM, Nicolas Doye wrote:
