This is a tracking bug for work needed in MachV to enable QuickLaunch (aka Turbo
mode, aka The Mother of All Leaks) by default.  To do this, we must first define
the correct behavior (functional spec), describe how it works (design spec), and
then fix a number of defects related to multiple profiles, mail accounts, PSM, 
memory usage, etc.

mass-reassigning pchen QuickLaunch bugs to blaker

i think we need to set some criteria for making this decision, and set a date
for when this decision needs to be made. propose we make the decision at the
beginning of the 1.0 milestone.
What decision?  This has already happened, and these are just the bugs we are
tracking as a result.  If milestone builds and the beta turn up problems, we may
be forced to reconsider, but there is no need to plan now to reconsider at any
Keeping QuickLaunch on by default is important, but I don't need this tracking 
bug on my radar.

Yes, I meant that I would just as soon have the actual bugs I'm responsible for
targetted to this milestone.
I know, and I'd rather you had the actual bugs- I'll take the meta bugs. :-)

What's the difference between this bug, and bug 75599? Is bug 75599 the
superset, and this bug simply the top items we need to resolve to "Enable
QuickLaunch by default for MachV"?

Basically.  Bug 7599 was an old tracker from previous releases, a catch-all that
is useless for MachV, IMO.  I don't see any reason to maintain it.  I am
tracking similar NS commercial issues using

Dunno if this would work...

If most of the turbo problems are due to switching profiles, is there some way
to quit and restart turbo when a different profile is selected and before 
launching the browser?  Worst case, we could throw up a dialog: "quit profile
manager) and disable turbo before switching to a different profile"...

Switching would take a performance (and maybe a usability) hit, but most users
who rarely (or never) switch profiles would get the full benefit of turbo.
We are looking into some variations on this approach, and plan to implement one
of them as a fallback option to use in beta if we can't get the real problems
fixed in time.

In my opinion, bug 100846 belongs to this list too. Because of the bug, the
QuickLaunch task bar icon is lost until Mozilla process is killed or computer is
restarted. Absence of the icon is a major loss of QL functionality.
Depends on: 138217
Thanks for keeping an eye out for QL issues Walter, but I'm not sure that it is
major loss of functionality. Is the process still running?   If so, then the
main benefit of QL remains.  The icon only provides the ability to exit, disable
and incidental access to individual components, which is only lost until Mozilla
restarts.  Plus, this happens only after an Explorer crash, which is pretty
Should this bug be blocked by 123633?  Blake asked the same question in that bug
