User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Android 4.4.4; Mobile; rv:46.0) Gecko/46.0 Firefox/46.0 Build ID: 20151231030214 Firefox for Android Steps to reproduce: In comparison to other browsers the Firefox mobile appears to be slow on first page load. But the problem is more visible in pages with redirect on first load. For example short links from apps like Facebook and news app. http://snaptu-p1.facebook.com/v1/310402191/u/-3572258998637345573/2/x Actual results: Slow page redirect Expected results: Fast redirect and better DNS cache and preload

This is in response to duplicate https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1449048 In both examples I tapped on a link from a social media app to open in Firefox. Buff.ly redirects to a HowToGeek page. The process takes less than 2 seconds: https://pastebin.com/sj8eynp6 It takes 7 seconds to redirect nbcnews.to to the main NBC site and load the page: https://pastebin.com/Prd6b1sB ""GeckoGlobalHistory: Rebuilding visited link set..."" and ""GeckoBrowserApp: BrowserApp.onTabChanged: 22: LOADED"" seem to play a bigger role in slowdown.
