Try doing what I specifically suggested, though.  Go to that site [1],
and background load a few articles from *that* site.

I'd be very surprised if you don't find it doing that annoying thing at
some stage.  Firefox's almost guaranteed to exhibit that fault on that
particular site (with all the gumph they add to pages, made all the more
worse with their timed page auto-refreshing), with Firefox in its usual
configurations (showing images, running scripting, using site styling).

But it doesn't take a site as convoluted as that one to exhibit the
problem, I picked it as it nearly always does.  It's quite a good "bad
example" site.
