Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 153 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Sometimes the http://ads.stackoverflow.com in

<div class="everyonelovesstackoverflow">
    ...

will delay (many seconds) to respond, thus "page numbers" and "footer" wont be rendered.
(I use Firefox v3.6 if that matters)

I suppose I could implement a Greasemonkey script for that job but I prefer it to be the default behavior :)
Wouldn't it be better if the sidebar was rendered last?

Out of interest, how often do you click stuff in the footer? and how often in the sidebar? – Rich Seller Mar 10 '10 at 12:28
    
@Rich that's not the point, you can neither comment nor answer during those few seconds. – Pëkka Mar 10 '10 at 15:04
    
@Rich, as a matter of fact, I often navigate to other sibling sites from the footer nav. – o.k.w Mar 11 '10 at 1:47
    
@Rich, "page numbers" is what I want. Right now there is a navigation glitch that should be resolved. – Nick Dandoulakis Mar 11 '10 at 9:20

This should no longer be an issue due to a change in the ad loading strategy.
