What's Related loaded before the real page loaded


(SeaMonkey :: Sidebar, defect)

Not set

I don't really think this is a bug. But this is an interesting issue.
If the "What's Related" tab in My sidebar is open, we seem load it's content 
very quickly, even before we load the real page
for example, 
1. open My sidebar and let it show on the left
2. open "What' Related" tab in the My Sidebar so it will disply links
3. in URL bar, type in and hit return
notice the sidebar change immediately and then several second later the real 
page load into the broweer.

Should we load the What's Related links AFTER we finish the loading of the real 
page ? Is that true the loading of "What's Related" may slow down the loading of 
the real page?

I am not sure how important this is because "What's Related" tab is off by 
default, right ?
It's on by default, I believe. I'm about to file a seperate bug on it even being
included in stock Mozilla, though.

Yes, the GET is sent to Alexa first, before the page we want. Linux 2001110612.
Setting OS=All.

This should be fixed by Alexa rather then waste Mozilla development time on a
3rd party utility.
