To get to the page with the problem, you'll have to fill out the form on the
page first - just type in anything, it doesn't matter - I'm not saving anything
there yet.

The problem is, that in the page follwing the one from the link I provided, I
have several layers that have quite a lot of content. These layers take a very
long time to display. This is not the case for layers with less content, so I
thought that may be the reason. The HTML code for the layers is not loaded from
an external source, it's just a block of HTML within a div tag that I display or

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. no special steps - jsut reload the page, it happens every time.

Actual Results:  The layers were displayed correctly.

Expected Results:  The layers should be displayed much faster.

I tested this on several machines running windows - one with windows 98,
Pentium3 700, one with Windows ME AMD Athlon 1330 and two others with slightly
different configurations. The problem was present on each with the same mozilla
build. I didn't try any other builds.

Could be faster, but I find it ok with 20020506/Win95 with K6-2 333MHz
so... I fill in name/email/password/homepage.  Then what?  I see no submit

Boris : You will need to fill in the data, then click on one of the 4 icons in
the box below the form, then click on "Nächster Schritt: deinen Avatar
zusammenstellen" ...

P.S. it seems that there is some error checking in those fields, so you can't
enter data as you like :)

WORKSFORME on 1.1/win2k

<>: if you still see this problem, could you provide a
testcase (the simplest possible page that has the rendering slowdown). 
Otherwise, please mark this bug INVALID.
