It seems that on any webpage I visit, the most important content loads last. For example, if I am trying to read the forums here. the top bar, sidebar and any ads that Adblock hasn't caught load before the actual topics list and forum content. If I'm checking my email, the ads, list of email folders and things like that load before I can see what messages I have.
I am using Firefox (whatver the latest version is) with Vista, but it happens no matter what browser/operating system I use.

Does this happen to anyone else?

Why does this happen?

It loads in the same order for everyone. It has to do with how the html is written.

You have Firefox: On the top menu bar, click on "View." Then, click "Page Source." This will show you the source code for the page you are on. (If you do this on your topic's page, you will notice that what people have written is quite a ways down.)

On the websites I've run, the html for pages is usually ordered header, sidebar, body, footer.
