viewing the result of the belgian online yellow pages (called golden pages) is extremely slow.
Lode: Please always include the "Build ID" in your bug reports. Thank you.
Build ID: 2001 11 26 03. Windows 2000. 850 MHz / 256 MB. Renders in less than one second for me. But I can note that the server is somewhat slow when responding the request.
Lode: de Gouden Gids is altijd een trage website geweest. WFM build 2001112009 (regular 0.9.6) on NT. This is a ratrher slow webserver, even when accessed from Belgian networks. It's build with Microshaft ASP's btw ... :-)
BUILD ID: 2001112009 / NT4.0SP6 The problem I notice is the results page after performin a query, when scrolling down one page by clicking in the vertical scrollbar on the right, it takes 5 seconds to display the next part of the page. Since the HTML is not reloaded, I think this has nothing to do with a slow network connection to that site, or a slow server.
I can't even access the site, I get a server error so the site must be down. You might want to try loading this page again once the server comes back online.
When I first went to the site, Mozilla appeared to be finish downloading the page, but the screen was blank and white. Then I hit the back button to return to bugzilla. Then I hit the forward button to go back to the site. At that time the site began to download, and rendering began. Later, when I have went to the site in the same browser session, the site downloaded and rendered normally. I can't reproduce the above behavior, even after deleting memory and disc cache. Once I got past the above events, I experienced quick, if not instant rendering on Build ID 2001120303, Windows 98, 383MHz K6-2, DSL connection. The slowness referred to in the original report could be caused by a slow or unresponsive server. Mozilla seems to have trouble starting downloads on some sites, however, such as drudgereport.com. Maybe this site creates a similar problem. Without having exact steps to reproduce the problem, however, we can't narrow it down. Can anyone reliably reproduce this problem?
I tried going to http://www.drudgereport.com/ and it loaded up very quickly, I am accessing the web through a cable modem though. There was a short period where the plug-in was getting loaded, maybe that is the slowness that you are experiencing. I believe that we have several other open bugs referring to the page load slowness in some areas. I am closing this one out, you may wish to make comments/entries in one of the other perf bugs
Well, I somehow made a comment for anotehr bug in this one, so please ignore comment #8.
Marking WFM in the Jan 24th build Windows ME, OS X, and Linux Redhat 6.2.
After installing 0.9.8 on NT4, (build=2002020406) I quickly checked if the problem is resolved, and it's still there. This time I dug a bit deeper into it, since other people have reported that they do not see the problem. Here are my findings: The problem is that their background image is HUGE (a 1000x4600 GIF), because viewing just the background image, and trying to scroll trough it gives the exact same performance 'problems': after clicking in the vertical scrollbar, under the handle (having the equivalent of 'pagedown') it takes about 3 seconds to react. The problem is most noticable when using the page after the link "rubriek of trefwoord [raadpleeg index]". Maybe it's due to the fact that NT4's memory management is not that fast? From the "task manager" I see that the time is mostly spent in "kernel time".
