User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1) http://www.bigtubresort.ca Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1) [Firefox 1.0PR] I installed firefox-1.0PR-i686-linux-gtk2+xft-installer.tar.gz on my Red Hat 9 system, upgrading from 0.8. My wife's Windows laptop has a directory that I access with an automounted smbmount. Any attempt to access the directory causes automount to kick off. Today I noticed that Firefox took almost a minute to load. I traced it to several links to files in the Windows share. Whenever Firefox loads, or if those links are moved within the bookmark structure, automount kick off. This results in a small (about 1 sec.) delay on load. Unfortunately, if the laptop is off the delay is on the order of a minute and the desktop can't be used. Only the clock is moving. I moved back to 0.8 to verify that automount doesn't kick off on load or when those bookmarks are twiddled. The workaround is to place those automount links in a subdirectory of Personal Toolbar Folder (Bookmarks Toolbar). Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Assuming you have an automount file system set up, drag a link to a file in that system from the URL bar to the bookmark bar. 2. Make the file system unavailable. 3. Close and reopen Firefox. Watch /var/log/messages to see automount messages. Firefox will seem to hang for a minute or so. Actual Results: Firefox startup delays until a timeout occurs. Automount has many failed retries. Expected Results: As with 0.8, Firefox should open immediately without 'exercising' the bookmarks.
