Comment 4 for bug 223238

To further pinpoint this is a Firefox 3.0b5 issue I downloaded Opera 9.5 beta 2 from http://www.opera.com/
filename is: opera_9.50b2-20080422.6-shared-qt_i386-en.deb

It's a night and day difference in the sites mentioned. It behaves around as fast as Firefox 3.0b5 does in Windows XP for me. If this was resolved in Firefox it would become web browser bliss.
