Comment 1 Matěj Cepl 2007-04-02 16:53:32 EDT
I can 100% (pun intended) reproduce it with Epiphany, on Firefox I get nice 75%
which gradually decreases to some 65% and there it stays. The difference is
probably caused by having installed Flashblock extension (the page is pretty
heavy on Flashes), but it still it is a lot.

Is it bug in Firefox or in the page?
Comment 2 Matěj Cepl 2007-04-02 16:54:53 EDT
Sorry, the difference was only when the tab was made inactive, when switching
back to the tab -- FF went up to close to 100% again.

Taking the bug.
Comment 4 Martin Stransky 2007-09-27 09:19:57 EDT
It's fixed in the upcoming version (FF 3.0). Closing as NEXTRELEASE.
