If you use an ftp client and do a dir on the URL above, you'll see it whip past quickly. However, mozilla will take upwards of 10 minutes to display the directory. (opinion)This sounds like the same type of thing that Mozilla has with listing a large number of bugs in bugzilla(/opinion).
WFM 2002012806-0.9.8/WinNT4 - I'm on a modem, but it seems to be listing the directory contents in the window just as fast as it gets the data. Checked against WS_FTP, times were about the same. Mind you, it's taking 100% of CPU to do it. (Dear me, has HP ever heard of subdirectories?)
Reporter: Please always include build ID in bug-reports. Dup of bug 85381?
Version 2002012803 Win32 Version 2002012703 Mac OS 9.2.2 Version 20020125xx Mac OS X FWIW, I concur that it's a dupe of bug 85381 Even on the 600MHz P3 Win32, the CPU is pegged at 100% for at least 2 mins. Using ftp the directory finishes in about 8 seconds. Slower CPU's feel exponentially more horrible (the OS 9.2.2 is a G3 233, and takes about 10 minutes). The G4 450 running OS X takes about 5.
