It takes a couple of seconds, instead of being inmediate or only 1 second. It has been reproducible from all major releases till now. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Go to http://genome.ucsc.edu/cgi-bin/hgc?hgsid=23574695&g=htcGetDna2&table=&o=1457976&l=1457976&r=1492610&getDnaPos=chr2%3A2000000-2500000&db=rn3&hgSeq.cdsExon=1&hgSeq.padding5=0&hgSeq.padding3=0&hgSeq.casing=upper&boolshad.hgSeq.maskRepeats=1&hgSeq.repMasking=lower&boolshad.hgSeq.revComp=1&submit=Get+DNA, select all and copy. 2. Go to http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/blast/bl2seq/bl2.html, and paste in any of the forms (called Sequence 1 or Sequence 2) Actual Results: It takes 16 secs Expected Results: Take 1 sec or less, as in IE or any text editor. There is a dependency on the text lenght, as it increases size it takes longer to load. It might be the same in other browsers, but as it takes less than 1 sec, you don't feel the difference.
I too have experienced some inefficiency with Mozilla form handling. I frequent www.dapcentral.org where there are large form lists for video inventories (some with a few hundred radio buttons). While IE will submit even a large form such as this almost instantly, Mozilla hangs momentarily while processing all the data. Not exactly priority one, but I agree it would be wise to have someone look into making it more efficient.

Ever confirmed: true
I'm seeing this in Linux with 1.7rc1, but it was OK before. This seems to be true when pasting anything, anywhere. It's now really slow. The bug seems to happen most, but not all times when pasting. Richard
