It seems to enter into a loop that it very rarely recovers from and I've left it up to 30 minutes without any recovery. My usual data set size is a table of 2-5k rows of 4 columns of short (4-25 char) unformatted text as an output from one of our systems. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Create a table of 4x2000 2.Manually select the whole table. 3.Copy the table Actual Results: Client locks up and stops responding. Expected Results: Copied the table to the clipboard. The same process works instantly in IE with perfect results, this is just a table of raw text values so its hard to see why it struggles so much.

Whiteboard: [CLOSEME 2011-2-25]
It's not locking up completely any more. Still some rendering issues with highlighted tables adding a 5-10 seconds to tab rendering.
Was that in a fresh profile? Try Firefox 4, there are some large improvements in rendering speed.
