The Firefox add-on Operator seems to create an issue where some PHP Manual pages hang for a few seconds before allowing browser control back to the user. If the add-on is disabled the PHP Manual pages load without issue.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Make sure Operator is installed and enabled
2. Browse to
Actual Results:  
The page hangs for a few seconds and I cannot do anything with the browser.

Expected Results:  
The page should have loaded without issue and I should have been able to continue using the browser.

I can confirm that this is also happening with Ubuntu 10.10 64-bit

Also slow for me - however, the page is somewhat long. Possibly the processing is simply slow for long pages? This might just be an efficiency issue. #629824 may or may not be a duplicate of this one.

I'm not sure how to fix the slow loading. I parse the whole page and it's not terribly efficient. I guess I need to look at using workers.
