It's incredibly slow, indeed. Most probably that background mucking about. :< That's bad.

Just use a different skin then, I find that one pretty unpleasant anyway.

How on earth can a theme make a browser slow
Thats just weird.
I mean, isnt the difference between themes just, effectively, different bitmaps being used? (as well as font size/colour changes?).

Twinsun by Night is the only theme that uses a sticky background image (it moves as the user scrolls down the page).

Oh, well, then its the fault of mozillas code then.
Odd really, as thats very basic and not taxing at all for modern machines.

Might be because the link to the stylesheet of twinsun at Night isn't defined in the <head> as far as I can see.

So FF has to check the whole script before loading the stylesheet and the images

Well, maybe it will work in 3.1 or whatever.
Opera 9 broke a lot of stuff that wasnt fixed till later versions. (.25, .27 and now finaly 9.51 which seems to get it all right...for now)

Cool, it's really fixed in Firefox 3.0.1.

(Or maybe El just fixed it.)

It's a Firefox 3.0.1 fix. I'm still using 3.0.0 and it's still slow.
*goes to update Firefox*
It's much better now.
