Now that I AM seeing. I think FF is busy doing background rendering of 
stuff off screen to the bottom since (heavens forbid) nobody puts the 
damned story, or in some cases not even the headline, high enough on the 
page that its visible when the page loads. Now that IS a PIMA.  And 
aggravating.  Since they track you, I have been known to spoil their fun by 
clicking on another link and going on as a means of sending a message.  
I've also been known to hit the reload key 200 times when cbs wants to show 
me a slide where a video is supposed to be.  Scroooooom.  Yeah, I have an 
attitude about that sort of thing for the simple reason it doesn't have to 
be that way.  In any event, I'm not sharpening my fingers at FF, but at the 
web composers taking orders from advertising execs who don't care how 
pissed the viewer is as long as he gets a click on the commercial.  And I 
miss a lot of stories because the damned commercial is 40 db louder than 
the story audio.

There, I feel better. :)

Cheers, Gene
