When accessing a signed page using the jar: protocol, the throbber freezes while PSM is starting up. Need to see whether this happens during SSL startup as well.
The status bar says "document:done" after the HTTP download has completed but before PSM finishes starting up. Users will think the browser's frozen for about 5 seconds.

Warren, could you take a look at this? Basically, nsJARChannel spends 5 seconds or so in the Open() function as PSM starts up for the first time. Though this is happening on the file transport thread, the throbber freezes until PSM is ready and Open() returns. Though menus, etc., still work, to a user it will look as though the browser is frozen.
why should warren look at this? the control connect blocks until psm is launched. This is the problem with an out of process ssl proxy. Maybe we should display a dialog? if so, open a RFE. marking as WONTFIX.
