I've a bay trail processor with HD graphics.

I've enabled hardware Firefox hardware acceleration (downloaded from

Even the GTK UI and scrolling is slow at 1024x768 resolution.

I thought this was an upstream problem, but it works fine with
Fedora 20 which uses 3.15 kernel.

I'm using backproted 3.16 kernel.

Any suggestions/hints?
Bay Trail graphics aren't well-supported without a very recent
X server: see

Even the one in wheezy-backports:
xserver-xorg-video-intel 2:2.21.15-2~bpo70+1

is probably not going to be particularly fast. But it's your
best hope.


No, it doesn't work well. I can confirm.

I'll request a backport for whatever stable packages are available.
