I prepared a directory under ~/tmp/ with 30,000 files using the attached script (after being called with "30000" as a parameter). Actual results: When browsing it with Firefox, it was unresponsive for many seconds, and afterwards hovering over links did not update the selected part propmptly. Expected results: Firefox should have been responsive throughout the entire time.

I can confirm there is slowdowns when facing directories with this amount of files. I was unable to run attachment 571403 [details] because of missing dependencies, but the following command do the same: $ touch `seq 1 30000`
