The following things need to happen in layout: 1) Differentiate between reflow events generated during document load and after document load. 2) Create an object that exposes the nsIRequest interface. Add the object to the load group at the start of layout and remove it once all the "during doc load" reflow events have been processed. 3) Fix up the perf metrics code. The following things need to happen in necko: 1) Change nsILoadGroup so that requests can get added and removed rather than channels. 2) Fix up the XUL cache code. We'll work on this post beta 2.

Shouldn't this be for *all* OS ?
Changing OS to All and marking nsbeta3...
OS: Windows NT → All
nsbeta3+, to the extent that it will increased perceived speed/responsiveness, especially on Mac.
Target Milestone: M17 → M18
Priority: P3 → P1
PDT downgrading to P2 and adding [PDTP2] to status whiteboard. We'd really like to have this.
PDT wondering if this is the same bug as blocking the throbber/progress while downloading a page. Still agree P2.
I have this fixed and will check it in tonight protected by a pref that is disabled by default. I'm not enabling the pref by default because I did not see much difference in perceived performance on my windows box. Mike and I will test this on the Mac on (slow machine, slow network), (slow machine, fast network), (fast machine, slow network), (fast machine, fast network) configurations. If this makes a significant difference in any configuration, we can enable the pref by default. Right now, the only data point we have is that this fix does not do much on a fast machine, fast network configuration on Windows.

I've turned on async reflow during doc load by default. It can be turned off by setting the "layout.reflow.async.duringDocLoad" pref to false in prefs.js. Marking bug fixed.
