Hi,

I have a website which does multiple redirects. I have measure the network and server overhead for them - but these dont add up to the User perceived time. Does any one know what is the overhead due to firefox for a redirect. I hope i am asking question in the right forum!

Thanks Santhosh

How are you doing the redirect? If you send a Location header (301 or 302), Firefox should request the new page immediately, but if you use a meta tag or script in the page, Firefox has to process the page first and the time will depend on lots of different things.
