Thats what I was thinking as well. I've fixed the menu refresh issue
pretty well with the latest PBI updates, right now the only problem is
that with slower systems, or less ram, the kmenu doesn't refresh as
quickly. (It may even be a timing issue in vmware)

I'm going to try and fix this printing issue with FF this week. I think I
have a good idea of whats causing it, but I'll sit down and confirm it,
and make a fix asap. Its been bugging me as well :)
