Profiling in Firefox/Firebug, what am I looking at?

    I am trying to track down the cause of some performance problems using
    firebug, but I am not completely sure what that I am interpreting it
    correctly. First of all, under the net tab, the total at the bottom
    is the time from the submission of the request to the final
    downloading of the last byte, correct? Or is it the time until any
    onload javascript has finished executing? Furthermore, it is true
    that execution of javascript in the page blocks downloading, isn't
    it? Also, the progress bar in the status bar in Firefox nearly fills
    up then empties and then fill up completely and stays that way for two
    or three seconds and then finally goes away. Is the first part of
    that the downloading from the server followed by the execution of the
    onload javascript in those last two or three seconds?

    Thanks for your help,
    Rob
