This page is not particularly bad for me using 2003060104.  Could be a new
problem on 20030602 build?

Reporter - can you test with your previous build of Mozilla and see if it's as bad?

8 tabs open on this 96 MB system, 38 MB ram free, System 56%, User 69%, GDI 56%

What are your resources? Can you tell numbers, before/after?
Do you have extensions installed?
Do you have enough space for the windows paging file? Mozilla cache?

I solved my problem by using the sugestion of Bug #204374 comment 69.
My machine has 576 Mb of RAM. There was no key browser.cache.memory.capacity. I
created one and put it to 4096. This did not help as key
browser.cache.memory.enable was still false.
Setting browser.cache.memory.enable to true stoped the resource hog. Browsing
the mentioned page ( did not give any
problems again.
After this I also Reset the key browser.cache.memory.capacity, it diappeared
from about:config but browsing the mentioned page did not cause any problem anymore.
