From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux 2.2.19 i686; en-US; rv:0.9.1+) Gecko/20010611 BuildID: 2001061108 On this page, http://www.timezoneconverter.com/cgi-bin/tzref.tzc (which is a really big form), the right-click popup menu is significantly slower than any other page I've seen -- maybe half a second on my Athlon-900, 256MB. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Go to this page 2. Right-click on an empty area Actual Results: Popup menu appears after 0.5sec. Expected Results: Popup menu should appear faster -- like it does on other pages. See also bug 77051, Linux popup menus painfully slow. But the popup menu on other pages isn't nearly this slow, and the popup menu on this page in 4.x is instantaneous, so I don't think it's just Linux. With 0.9.1 on Windows 2000, it's slower than other pages, but not this slow. I realize I'm using the word "slow" a lot. I don't know how to get some solid numbers; maybe somebody could help me out? :-)
i think this is a dupe of something morse fixed this past week.

Ach so! I tried 2001061411, and it's much better. That's what I get for running a browser that's 3 days old.

I don't see much of difference between either 6/11 or 6/14 on linux. It is slower on that page and it gets slower as I add more elements to the form, I assume due to the form management code being triggered. Always room for optimization, although I don't find this pathologically slow.
I haven't investigated this, but I could well believe that it is the form manager. I do a walk through the dom in order to determine which entries I want to make visible in the context menu. If this ain't broke (not pathologically slow), then let's not fix it.
The slowdown is pretty noticeable for me, and it's only going to get worse on slower machines and pages with more form elements, so I think it's worth looking into how to improve this.

Ever confirmed: true
nav triage team: Yes, it would be nice for this to be faster, but not a 0.9.3 stopper. Marking nsbeta1+, p3, and mozilla1.0
