Puppy Linux + Firefox = Blurry text?

I am using the latest version of Puppy Linux (5.1.1) and it is awesome. Very easy to use, easy to setup, and very FAST.

Everything works except this one little problem.

I am using the intel driver as it was the one puppy linux recommended for my hardware.

It is running at 1024x768x16

The big problem here is when using Firefox (or any other internet browser) and during scrolling, the text (and images) blurs together making it unreadable.

I am not sure if this is a puppy linux problem or a xorg problem or a intel driver problem.

Fixed my problem.

Besides puppy linux installing the intel driver, it didn't actually configure xorg.conf to USE it.

I used the xorgwizard to set the intel driver as the one being used and that fixed the problem.
