Not directly related to your problem (maybe), but I've noticed that
since recent versions, Mozilla applications performance in NX server
is terrible! The screen redraws like crazy and it's almost impossible
to use Thunderbird or Firefox anymore. (I've also noticed this with
certain KDE/Qt programs as well, with Akregator being the worst one.)
Older Mozilla programs like Seamonkey 1.x still work great, though. So
I'm not sure if they're doing some kind of optimized drawing or some
trick that's not fully supported everywhere...
