From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; WinNT4.0; en-US; rv:1.0rc1) Gecko/20020417
BuildID:    20020417

When entering URL the contents of the page are not shown in random cases. There
is not one specific page that shows this problem. The trick to view the contents
is to go one page for- or backward and return to the page that was requested.
The content is immediately there. Is Mozilla waiting for end of document?

Reproducible: Sometimes
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Just go and surf and it will happen within 5 minutes in my case

Actual Results:  At a certain point the page content will not be shown and the
Mozilla icon is moving like it is still receving data

Expected Results:  Show data within 10 secs

Maybe this problem occurs because I am behind an MS ISA server? Is there a way
to auto configure Mozilla, like in IE 'Auto detect correct settings' iso
providing a configuration script of which I do not know the location. For now I
just filled in the http proxy. But I am almost sure  this is not enough.

I tried same pages with IE, which gave results in few seconds. Maybe it is
cahced on the server, so refreshed page in Mozilla. Page should be shown within
seconds, but this was not the case.

Seems that it is related because I am behind an ISA server. 
With a direct connection to the internet, this problem does not happen very much.

Seems it is not really a bug. Mozilla is waiting untill everything is loaded
before showing the contents. Is this right? Maybe an idea to add an option in
the preferences where you can choose if page contents should be shown
immediately or after loading complete page content.

Reporter says this isn't a bug. Suggest you file an RFE if there is a specific
behavior you think mozilla should follow
