Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: 1. Request a page from a server which is slow to respond. 2. Open a new tab, and attempt to load up another site. I often open 2 or 3. Actual Results: The second and third tab didn't begin loading until the first tab had recieved some initial data. Expected Results: Tabs to render asynchronously, and to load up regardless of the other tab's status. They were different sites, so unlikely to be slowed by network traffic. As soon as the first tab started loading, the second and third ones came up immediately.
running Windows XP. Browser opens correctly when first used after boot up. Once closed and an attempt is made to reopen it the browser loads in teh back ground, without any display and I have to reboot windows to get it corrected. The system manager upon shut down says Firefox is running but it doesn't display on my screen. Thus I must reboot. I'm running Firefox 1.03 also tryed to reinstall Firefox and it continues to do this. Started upon update last week.
I see this same behavior on gentoo linux running on amd64 (compiled 32-bit for x86). Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050511 Firefox/1.0.4 Often when I open a bookmark group in tabs half of the tabs will take upwards of 30 seconds or more to load. When they do load they all load within a second of each other. I've opened the various connection settings to 500 to no avail. There definitely seems to be some kind of locking/blocking/synchronous behavior here. I see it on major sites (yahoo/slashdot/etc) as well as on sites being served from localhost.
Seems to be a networking library issue, at a wild guess. I'd say it's waiting for "free connections" to push through to the next lot, or it's being buffered elsewhere, or something. Unfortunately, I've no idea where to start on this one... (In reply to comment #2) > Often when I open a bookmark group in tabs half of the tabs will take upwards of > 30 seconds or more to load.

Reporter, do you still see the problem with the latest nightly build? http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/nightly/latest-mozilla-central/
no reply to comment 4 after more than a month, closing WFM. Reporter and commenters, please reply to this report if you continue to experience this problem with a more recent version of Firefox.
