Hi Experts!

I have a site with a lot of content. And I have a striped background. When the background position is set to scroll, everything works fine. But when I set the background-position to fixed the it is a huge lag when scrolling in FireFox.

Works fine in Safari, IE7 etc.

Ideas?

How large is the image?  If both dimensions are less than 50 pixels, I suggest you see if making at least one of the dimensions at least 100 pixels makes a difference.  (Repeating background images lots of time makes browsers do a lot of work.)
