Why is progressive rendering of tables no longer active?

Posted

I have a web application that can generate a large table - this can take many minutes. This isn't a problem since individual rows were previosly displayed in 1-2 seconds. Now with FF4 it seems that large tables only display once they have finished loading (after the closing </table> tag is received), whereas with FF3 (as well as Chrome and Safari) they start rendering as soon as data is received.
