"We need your help to improve Mozilla's performance.
If you want to help, please read these instructions to see what you should put in a performance bug report, and for how to use jprof, the freely available profiling tool for Mozilla that runs on RedHat 6.1. If you can already build Mozilla on RedHat 6.1, you can generate profiling data.
#8 A major performance need

The most major performance need in Mozilla has to do with the painful reloads when pressing the back or forward buttons. The major reason why I use IE over Netscape is because of this. Just try IE5, press the back button, and watch the page come up instantly. In Netscape and Mozilla the page reloads from scratch! It has to do with caching I think. As long as this feature is implemented, I'll still use IE5.
