           Summary: Version 2.0.4 (419.3)  OS X v. 10.4.8  PaylPal Shipping
                    & Packing Slip Creation Impossibly Slow
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 419.x
          Platform: Macintosh PowerPC
               URL: http://www.paypay.com
        OS/Version: Mac OS X 10.4
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: Major
          Priority: P1
         Component: Accessibility
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: isthatspam at veryspeedy.net

I'm an eBay PowerSeller and not an engineer.  My report will, regretfully,
reflect that.  Nevertheless I'm hoping it may be of some value.

Safari has never been a speed demon when using PayPal to ship, via the USPS, or
generate packing lists, but over the last ~3 weeks what was just sluggish
behavior, has degraded to the point that I've had to switch to FireFox v. 2 to
use PayPal's site at all.

Presumably changes were made on the PayPal side, but the net effect is that the
latest release version of Safari is currently -- effectively -- broken when
using PayPal for eBay use.

A workflow example:

Log into PayPal.

Click on "Print Shipping Label" wait 10-20 seconds under Safari.  Next click on
"Create Packing Slip, wait 10-20 seconds under Safari.

Both operations take a 1-2 seconds with FireFox.  Needless to say but that kind
of time differential makes Safari look truly awful.

This has been verified across six PowerPC machines here, all running the same
OS and Safari versions.

Sorry I could not provide more details.  Thanks for any progress in this area.
I understand it's not a high priority but it really hurts my workflow.

Thank you.
