Build Identifier:

Our CMS builds form pages with several tabbed sections, totaling about 150 form elements. Some are in hidden divs. If a client submits the form as soon as the button is painted, some of the fields in the form are blank. If you wait for the 'loading icon' to finish spinning and submit, all fields post correctly. We verified the bug repeated 5 times in a row, and verified that waiting for the icon worked correctly 5 times in a row.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. load a prepopulated form - ours has about 100 fields with a large, javascript div-based WYSIWYG editor in the middle.
2. save the form as soon as the save button shows (it is at the top)
3. observe the form post values (many are not included)
Actual Results:  
The fields were not posted. That is, they were not included in the request back to the server.

Expected Results:  
Post the fields.
