content in iframe flicker on load


I'm using an iframe in my page.
When the user click on a link in the iframe the transition to the new page is not as smooth as if the page was stand alone.

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd">
  2. <html>
  3.     <head>
  4.         <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
  5.         <title>iframe</title>
  6.     </head>
  7.     <body>
  9.         <iframe src="http://www.drupal.org"
  10.             id="childFrame"
  11.             width=100%
  12.             height=800px;
  13.             name="childFrame">
  14.         </iframe>
  18.     </body>
  19. </html>
It It noticeable in FF 2.

Is there a workaround?

I think the reason you dont see the 'flash' when viewing a page normally, outside of an iframe, is that the previous page is displayed by firefox, until it is ready to display the new page.
You'll notice that the old page is no longer clickable, and sometimes flash content will freeze, but sound will still play.

When inside the iframe, as soon as the browser begins to loads the data, it replaces the content of the iframe with the still downloading content.

You cant really get around this, but why is it such a big issue?
