This is not noticeable in non-e10s window. Steps To Reproduce: 1. Make sure e10s autostart 2. Open NewTab by click [+] button Actual Results: "Connecting..." is temporarily displayed. And then changed to "New Tab". So, the tab title is flickering. Expected Results: We should reduce such flicker
This is a result of about:newtab not being remote - we flip over to a non-remote browser, which causes the flicker. This should be fixed by bug 1021654.

Do you still see this, Alice? I know bug 1021654 landed, but the work to fully remote-ify the about:newtab page has been postposted by the Content Services team.
I cannot reproduce the problem anymore. https://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/rev/31fc97d173b3e3da5de35d54018855e6c905787e Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:45.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/45.0 ID:20151203030226
