The "This Old House" header updates SLOWLY
Firefox + IE
On both FF 4+ and IE, on every page the header doesn't seem to pull from a cache, but updates very slowly. The primary logo icon and each of the drop-down menu icons to the right:
[LIST][*]Planning & Ideas[*]How to Repair[*]Products & Tools[*]Give & Get Advice[/LIST]
...draw one by one at a second+ each. As if each one is doing a fetch directly from your server every time. Not sure what's happening here. Since this for some reason must complete before the rest of the page is shown, it requires a 5+ second wait after every click.
[COLOR=Red]EDIT: UPDATE on my observation. For some reason it seems that the P&T and the G&GA icons and everything to the right appear all at once. (BUT the logo icon and first 2 icons are still one at a time). AND it's slower in IE. Huh.
If needed I'll try to capture this as an AVI or something for you.[/COLOR]
