[plt-scheme] firefox locking up 15 seconds for each plt documentation search

I should've complained earlier! Yes, I figured everyone just put up  
with this. :) It's so bad that I never use F1 and just keep a page  
open to the docs. Even then, any search still locks up the browser for  
a painfully long time.

Thanks for bringing this up. I should've said something sooner.
