Description User image Joel Horst 2010-01-31 19:57:03 PST
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv: Gecko/20090715 Firefox/3.5.1

I'm on dialup. In Thunderbird 2, when loading the message summary, Thunderbird would show the text of the message while downloading the pictures. Thunderbird 3 gives me a blank screen and makes me wait while it downloads pictures -- which might be 30 seconds or a minute (or longer). When I tried opening the RSS entries in separate tabs, they still didn't load until I opened the tab.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Connect via dialup
2. Subscribe to a blog feed that includes pictures and download latest entries
3. Open message and wait for it to download
Actual Results:  
Blank screen with "Loading Message..." in status bar until message loaded.

Expected Results:  
Should show me the text of the message while the pictures download.

It seems conceivable that this is a result of the some of the content policy changes; adding Standard8 to see if this tickles his memory somehow...

I doubt this is content policy. More likely a result of the changes to the message display/loading paths (which, of course, affects display of the RSS feeds).
