In my last post I noted that there is a bug in firefox 3 beta 5 (not really, the bug is unintentional, as a result of a code cleanup) that causes the dropdown menus, including the url bar, to hav really bad animations.
To fix this until the patch comes out:
- Open up the Advanced Compiz Settings. If you don’t have this (System > Preferences > Advanced Desktop Effects Settings) do a ‘sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager’.
- Go to ‘Animations’
- In the ‘Close Animation’ tab, remove ‘Utility’ (and it’s pipe |) from ‘Glide 2’.
- In the ‘Open Animation’ tab, remove ‘Utility (and it’s pipe |) from ‘Glide 1’.
- That’s all. Now the dropdowns will look a lot better.
