On the about:Support page under “GPU Accelerated Windows” it says 0/1 on my system so I think that means I don’t have hardware acceleration enabled. Still I am getting 60+fps on that page you linked to. Strange.
With 9800GTX (latest drivers) openSUSE x64 Firefox 4 RC and webgl.force.enabled and layers.acceleration.force both set to true I am getting about 25 FPS … with them false/off more than 60+ FPS. So I guess I am better off with’em turned off (0/1).

this seems like a question best aimed at the Firefox developers…
i say that because here, i find that that Google Chrome is over three
times faster than Firefox, and both Opera and Konqueror are four times
i used to have IE4Linux but it is so butt-ugly i haven’t installed it
on this beautiful version of openSUSE…
anyway, it seems the Fox3 is a little piggy…
