Iceweasel really slow when scrolling

Icewaesel is really slow with scrolling when flash is used on a webpage.

I am running Debian Squeeze on my M65 precision laptop and all works fine.
I have installed proprietary NVIDA drivers for my Nvidia quaddro fx350M and run GLXgears with above 2500FPS and can run openarena without a glitch on full wack full resolution.

The problem exists with both compiz running or just metacity.
I am using adobe flashplayer from the non free repository
Hardware acceleration in flashplayer is enabled.

Dus anyone have a clue?

I have Debian Squeeze installed on a 3.2 GHz P4, 512 MB, ATI Mobility Radeon, and I don't have this problem in Iceweasel, for what it's worth.
The problem could be how flash is interacting with your graphics card. Also, try a different browser to see if the problem persists.

I don't know much about video games, but 2500 FPS sounds impressive.
