Something is blocking first content paint by a whopping 1,300%

Hey guys, currently there is something in the code that Webflow delaying actual first content paint by a whopping 1,300%.

See this video for an explanation:

Basically, on Google Pagespeed, this site reports a page a phenomenal first content paint of 0.4-0.6 seconds. However, in actual usage, the page first content paint is delayed by around 5 seconds where the user stares a blank screen before the page itself renders, despite the file downloading near instantly.

I’m super confused, having scoured through devtools etc and I have no idea what’s going on/causing this. This issue appears on both the self hosted version of the site as well as the .webflow.io verison.

Issue was with the Google Optimize anti-flicker integration. Removing Google Optimize solves this issue.
