Fluxbox + Firefox slow

I use fluxbox as my window manager. Its pretty sweet for most stuff --
light and fast. However when scrolling around in firefox the system is
brought to its knees (CPU load spikes to 80-90%). This also happens
quite a bit when altering the focus between firefox and other windows.

I use a focus-on-mouse-pointer setup which means the focus can shift
quite quickly a number of times which can exacerbating the problem.

The video card is a pci geforce 2 which is reasonable for 2D
performance. This is a (dual) P3 system at 866mhz.

Does anyone else find the same thing? Can you recommend any
alternatives to firefox that perform better in fluxbox (and obviously
is as featureful as possible)
