Any idea why is Firefox freezing when I try to browse this while Chrome/Comodo Dragon not? I'm pretty sure that's a huge directory but I want to see if anyone else has the same problem using Firefox.

It seemed to take a long time to load.

Mine did not freeze, but it took about a minute.

So is normal because the list is huge :unsure: I also wonder how can be fixed, more RAM? Better CPU?

An fresh instance of Firefox with this site loaded, takes 260MB of RAM here. I don't know if it's because it's firefox or because the list is really MASSIVE and therefore Firefox is instantly using a great amount of RAM, maybe that's what's causing the lag. I don't know maybe you can submit a report for that particular web page?
