    That happened to me with the old FF, not sure if it happens with 2.0 yet. It's from images loading and the page correcting its position. Don't know how to fix it. D:

    yeah like if i go to another page, then go back, it doesnt shake around anymore...strange. i think i might stick with IE7 until FF gets an update.

    in Firefox goto about:config, there create a new integer setting called nglayout.initialpaint.delay (default is 250), try setting that to lower values and see if that helps.

    I went to Download.com and they took a servey to see which one is better FF V2 or IE7. FF V2 won hands down.

    Yeah, I have problems myself. Everything loads slower then the previous version and the screen freezes for a few seconds during loading times. I dunno if it's a bug or what but it's getting pretty annoying.

    I also had a serious problem, nothing would work and my bookmarks were gone. Try reverted back to the old version, uninstall that version, then go and download version 2. That worked for me and now it works perfectly.
