[thelist] CSS-Based page loading SLOWER than table-based page?

I just recoded a very large shopping page from all tables to all CSS...
the file size was reduced quite a bit; however the page loads MUCH
slower!  I looked into it, and it looks like Firefox isn't running
multiple HTTP requests simultaneously halfway though loading the page,
while it DOES load them simultaneously in the tabled version.

Does anyone know why that is happening, or how to fix it?

p.s. I am very sorry for not being allowed to post a URL and for having
to obfuscate the image names, part of the job :(
