Hmm. On Mac this is basically instantaneous for me. Is this windows-specific?
On Linux as well (actually 3.6.x are quite snappy on linux); that's why I was rather surprised when I got the report. And seems to also be a problem with 3.6.3 on Vista, so it hasn't yet been "fixed" on that end...
Interesting. 3.6 on Mac is definitely fast on the linked-to page... which is too bad, since that's where the decent profilers are. ;)
confirming with SM trunk on vista. I get a 10s+ freeze on my core2 Duo 2Ghz fast: 2009-02-23-03-mozilla-central/ slow: 2009-02-25-03-mozilla-central/ bug 479276 got fixed ar 2009-02-24
Yes, this is (almost certainly) due to bug 479276, which was known to carry a risk of perf impact for MathML on Windows. For most pages (with a moderate amount of MathML) it's not a serious issue, but this example shows that for pages with a large amount of MathML it can become unacceptable. (See also the related bug 445087 comment 68.) I think we can fix this by some additional caching; I'll try to work up a patch and see how it behaves (both perf and memory impact).
Created attachment 444297 [details] [diff] [review] patch, v1 - cache the secondary font used for mathml metrics This fixes the mathml perf regression by caching the non-antialiased copy of the font used to get glyph metrics for mathml layout, instead of recreating it on the fly each time metrics are needed.
Nice, quick diagnosis, and the patch looks elegant (from a long distance!). I'll look forward to testing... will this show up in a nightly tonight, or soon?
Bruce, the nightly produced the morning after this bug gets marked FIXED will contain the patch. Unfortunately committing patches is not a simple task and so it may be several days before the patch gets committed.
Created attachment 444405 [details] [diff] [review] patch for 1.9.2 branch This is an equivalent patch for the 1.9.2 branch (FF 3.6.x). The original patch doesn't apply to the branch because this code has been substantially restructured on trunk. Tryserver build of 3.6 with this patch is available at: https://firstname.lastname@example.org/
The try version seems to fix the problem, without seeming to introduce any others. Thanks!! looking forward to it's migrating into a release!

Comment on attachment 444405 [details] [diff] [review] patch for 1.9.2 branch Requesting approval to land on 1.9.2 branch as this is a serious perf regression in FF3.6/Windows for MathML-heavy pages.
We aren't going to take this in 22.214.171.124 but will be a candidate for 126.96.36.199.

Comment on attachment 444405 [details] [diff] [review] patch for 1.9.2 branch We won't be taking this in 188.8.131.52...we alreeady have too many fixes and a tight schedule. Feel free to nominate it for .7 though
