Sluggish flash render performance in Firefox

Discovered an interesting (read: annoying until I found the problem) difference in the rendering behaviour of an AS3 movie between IE and Firefox (2.0.0.14) and the IDE.

I have a custom widget to control the scrolling of a Datagrid component which emits MouseMove events to trigger the scrolling of the Datagrid ScrollPane. This performs perfectly well in the IDE and in IE but very poorly in Firefox.

Adding an UpdateAfterEvent method call solved the problem.
