In my rails application, certain computers were having huge problems.
There were certain pages that were exceptionally slow, even to the point
of timing out. Other computers did not have a problem. I finally found
that Firefox was the difference. When using Firefox on those computers
it works fine. The slow pages were typically posting a form with a
couple hundred fields.
This behavior was the same with the rails server running on Windows,
Ruby 1.8.2, Apache2, FastCGI and also on Linux, Ruby 1.8.4, Lighttpd,
Any ideas what would cause this?
