BTW, what is the reason for considering it a bug? Is it because:
is insufficient and or a pain when you want to load a plug-in but
completely hide it so it's as if it's not there layout-wise?
Or, is there some other reason(s)?
Do you know of any sites that would work better if the bug was fixed? Know
any sites that'd break or begin to unexpectedly load a bunch of <object>'s
that weren't meant to be loaded yet?
If the change is trivial, maybe someone can throw up an experimental FF or
webkit binary with the fix. (Or, provide it as an about:config option in
the trunk builds like the HTML5 parser option is).
Then, I can test how things work and give feedback.
