    Firefox scrolls very slowly when I'm on a very detailed web page lets say www.bungie.net.

    It also happens on YouTube when I scroll down to view the comments, it is slow when I scroll through where the video is and it speeds up when at the comments.

    Laggy...

    I also get the same type of problem you are experiencing in latest Firefox beta (3.5 beta 4) and this laggy problem is one of the reasons why I am reluctant to use Firefox as the main browser. Scrolling in Firefox is horrible if zoomed in or out. Hopefully the problem is addressed and fixed before the final release.

    Try scrolling when zoomed in or out to see the problem at the website below:
    www.cnet.com

    When the zoom is reset (Command-0), the laggy problem goes away.

    Note that Safari 4 Beta does not have this problem.

    there are bug report on this, will see how much they can do.

    ps. zooming scrolling and heavy page scrolling are two different issue.
