Mozilla memory usage climbs rapidly to about 300MB RES (600-700MB VIRT)
to display this page (after it has finished loading).  This causes
swapping (if you aren't blessed with huge amounts of RAM). Swapping
causes headaches. I won't say the page is handled very efficiently, with
regard to memory usage, but hey, we're talking about Mozilla here. Buy
some more RAM and label the chips with "Reserved for Mozilla", then
insert onto mainboard. See if problem goes away.
