Jquery is used by wordpress. That is why we tried jquery, but the aminations with jquery are uglier and slower….

I’ve been having the same issue and had to scrap an almost completed jQuery project because it’s impossible to run in FF4 (didn’t even realize till the end when I tested in Windows because FF hardware acceleration isn’t compatible with Linux). Like you said, works fine in every browser under the sun except FF4 with Hardware Acceleration enabled – which, as you mentioned, is on by default. Tried switching to CSS3 animations (controlled by jQuery) instead and ran into the same issue.

Honestly, I’m stumped, and I’ve been surprised there hasn’t been more discussion on this around the web. Unless there’s something obvious I’m missing – but I’ve seen the effects of this ‘bug’ on a few other sites anyway.

I was hoping the latest version of FF4 would fix this, but I haven’t tested yet…

that’s due to firefox gc kicking in at random time.

this lead to interval events not being fired so time based tweens are choppy.

haven’t tried latest ff4 thing (which name i forgot) meant to be used with animations but i solved using counter based tweens.

Now that is why if we do not find a solution we will scrap jquery and use what we used before… MOOTOOLS !!!!

I’m also having some trouble with jQuery 1.6 and FF4 , I used 1.5.2 for a drop down menu which worked without any problems and smooth, now it runs pretty bad in FF4 with 1.6 anyone else having issues related to 1.6 ?
