Why is progressive rendering of tables no longer active?

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.

Quick followup to this. The issue is resolved by setting html5.parser.enable to false in about:config.
