To hopefully spur some Mozilla programmers into action relating to the problems of Firefox on Linux.

Then again, the issue is actually more Cairo than Firefox; apparently the lack of 'teh snappy' is going to be corrected in 1.4 - if you have a look on the Cairo site, there are some benchmarks about the improvements made in 1.3.x vs. 1.2.
