Common, Tel Aviv, where's the Firefox spirit?

So I’m going to live in the place in that picture. But why did I have to go through an ordeal just to get tel-aviv’s free for all gis site to actually give me this shit? First it doesn’t show you the overview – so you guess where florentine is and do an initial zoom in. After several tries you get it. Then there is that annoying “loading” graphic that doesn’t disappear, ever. Arghh. On the bright side – I’m moving to Tel Aviv!

gis.tel-aviv.gov.il admins/developers, hear this, hear this: firefox is not a 0.1% market anymore, more like 20%. Linux FF users, like moi, are not that many, but growing. Please fix. I’m hereby volunteering to beta test any improvement you throw at me.

And before anybody asks: this was done on FF3, with both the profile in the picture and a relatively clean one without any addons, and FF2 didn’t even get this far. All on ubuntu hardy (or is it intrepid now? but that hardly matters to the firefox version).

My Place for the next bits of life
