The new google streetview (which does not use Flash) is unusable and renders very slow starting with pixelated images that progressively build. The slowness is not present in FF30.0 on Windows.

It seems to be an issue in Linux Mint as well: http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=47&t=180542 It seems to be quite common on the google map forums: https://productforums.google.com/forum/#!topic/maps/rWUCllpDDSE

There seems to be bug open already: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=697443

But why does FF30.0 on windows work O.K but not FF31.2.0 on Linux?
