I had similar issue and tracked it down to 2 factors:

(1) Upgrade to kernel >= 3.0 slowed down, it's as fast as usual with linux
2.6.39

(2) Gnome-settings-daemon doing the GTK theming. It was slow even with default
theme 'advaita'. No OpenGL eye candy enabled here. Disabling gsd accelerated a
lot too. But only the kernel downgrade achieved the 'usual' speed.

This is amd64 with nvidia GeForce7300 and maybe finally the Xorg nvidia driver
is to blame. But comparing many other machines with linux i know, it is my
belief that GTK generally is slow as hell, in nearly any other GTK application.
Firefox is doing quite some optimization, it seems, to continue to be fast.
