V8 benchmark scores should go up about 1000 points when TI lands. After that, FF devs seem to think most of the rest of the difference between it and Chrome comes down to the garbage collector. Planned changes to bring the FF GC up to speed are upcoming, but may not happen for another 3-4 months while TI settles.
Firefox gpu acceleration in linux is still absolute shot for me (its only gotten semi-usable in firefox 8). It just makes everything slower right now If I enable opengl layers.
I have intel ironlake graphics.
On a T510 with 4500MHD(Ironlake) I see no change in performance whether I force-enable acceleration or not (and for that firefox rotational benchmark mentioned earlier I get around 44fps on an M620).
However, I DID have massive slowdowns awhile back with FF4, IIRC.
