This isn't really FOUC.  This is just normal page loading.  Gecko and WebKit
both look pretty ugly on a fresh load of the page.  Gecko doesn't look ugly on
refresh, but that's because its refresh is incomplete.  You have to hit
Shift+Reload to get a real refresh in Gecko.

The problem with Gecko's approach is that refreshes can be incomplete, and
people have to discover the secret Shift modifier key in order to get real
refreshes.  To avoid this problem we just treat all refreshes as full.  This
results in a slower refresh than Gecko, but also in a refresh that is never
incomplete or wrong.
