    Hi all,

    So I have this problem.

    I'm using firefox 4 and the latest version of gfx on MBP 2010.

    When the firefox is opening and I switch the card to either integrated or dedicated, the firefox becomes laggy, I need to restart firefox to solve the problem.

    Anyone else experiences this?

    The FF should activate the discreet automatically due to OpenCL acceleration. But if you choose one or the other before running the program, there shouldn't be anything laggy.

    The lag might be caused by the computer adjusting to which GPU to use. If you select to only use the integrated GPU FIRST then open FireFox, there shouldn't be any lag.
