Go to http://comment.independent.co.uk/letters/ and click on a link to a letters page. They start Letters:..... The user interface then freezes for 15 seconds before the page comes up. The effect is particularly easy to see when using tabs since the "loading tab" animation freezes too after about 5 seconds. I am reporting this on a G3 powerbook using a cable modem, but the same thing occurs to me on Linux too (Suse rpm build from ftp.suse.com) on a high end biprocessor, 64 bit xeon- Thus it seems to be a more general than just mac os x. Despite the great difference in performance of the machines the freeze is still about 15 seconds. "Top" does /not/ show firefox using large amounts of CPU. This is a major UK web site which is very difficult to navigate with firefox. Cross checking with Safari (to see that network is OK) leads to rapid loading of page. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Go to http://comment.independent.co.uk/letters/ 2. Click on a "Letters:..." link 3. Try to switch tabs or open a menu Actual Results: Browser freezes 15 seconds every time Expected Results: Link should open rapidly I see this on very high level linux workstations, as well as under mac os. (Suse 10)

Reporter, do you still see this problem with Firefox 2.0? If not, can you please close this bug as WORKSFORME. Thanks!
2.0 seems a little slower than IE on my problem sites, but at last they actually work without errors. That is, they render correctly? well they render as in IE6 and do not show errors. :-) As far as I am concerned my issues at least are fixed. Or should that be FOXED haha. Thank you guys.
