Also when adding a break; there and using FF5 I cannot reproduce this
huge speedup as you have. For me it only loads about a second longer.

If you say it might be caused by page reflows - what if you add the
following to theme_right.css.php?

div#statustabs_queries .highcharts-container {
  height: 350px;

Does that help with anything? As for me, I see no clear speed
improvements in ff or chrome
