Any ways for a few days I am using an amd64 current as my desktop.
Every thing was fine except Firefox the problems I faced was

1) Latency for the characters to appear on screen while typing
especially into my gmail web interface.

2) Switching from another program window to firefox takes time.

3) Freezes some times

4) Switching tabs to and from the gmail interface takes time.

These things remain as it is even after the latest build/install world

Let me try pkgsrc head there mighbe 3.6.9 :-)
