Mandrake In 2009.1, if you launch Firefox remotely via ssh, xdm, or rlogin, the menus are sluggish. When you right click on links, it takes 2-3 *seconds* for the menu to appear. A new libxcb package was build with fixes for this issue, bringing firefox back to it's normal speed when running remotely.
