Windows Selector Sluggish


Lately the Windows Selector has been sluggish. For instance when I am in Thunderbird, and I want to switch to Firefox, I click on firefox, and it takes a few seconds to respond. Any Ideas?

Thanks in advance

Ok...what version/distro of Linux are you on? What desktop environment? what kind of hardware?

I'm guessing Ubuntu...did you Google for any solutions?? This came up:

Ubuntu 9.40
Intel Dual Core
4 GIG Ram
Problem seemed to start after I enabled the 3D-accelerated proprietary graphics driver for ATI cards.
