If firefox 3.03b3 needs to share screen space with another window, i.e. unless it's the only window on a tag or layout is full screen, the web page area in firefox "shakes", as if firefox tries to re-layout it continously.

I haven't seen this behaviour in any program, and i have not tried another version of firefox.

Perhaps this is not a bug in awesome but in firefox.
This task depends upon

so in this setup it should shake?
here nothing like that is the case.

git-awesome and 4bpre firefox

Well, the pattern for me seems to be that it happens any time firefox is not given 100% of the width of the screen.. so yes, that should shake.
My resolution is 1280x1024.

Is there any way i can give you more to go on?

i have the same resolution.

maybe updating ffox + awesome to the git version especially.;a=summary there you can download a tarball, or
git-clone git:// should work too. directing directly to
that new built awesome binary in .xinitrc or however - then you don't even have to actually 'install' it.

then a screenshot or even a 'recordmydesktop' of that behaviour when it's still there.
