Mozilla hogging the CPU during startup on Mac was identified as one of the issues for Mac dogfood. We need to figure out how to make it play nice with other apps during startup (more WaitNextEvent calls). This could be done: * Get to the main event loop earlier, or... * Sprinkle yield calls around in startup code (maybe use progress callbacks) * Spawn a 2nd NSPR thread which parasitically calls WaitNextEvent
I don't get this, most Mac apps just take over your machine 100% while they're launching. I was actually shocked that I could do anything at all while Moz was starting up! Maybe someone will disagree but I think Mozilla is already better at this than any other Mac app I can think of. Then again, I have a G4 so performance is not something I can judge. I think this is good enough. Naturally it would be nicer if Moz started *faster* but that would almost argue the other way - towards calling waitnextevent less!
Are you running debug or optimized builds?
Nightlies, so optimised. I can definately interact with the Finder and other apps while Mozilla is loading.
Updating to beta3+.

PDT feels that faster startup is most critical. Given potential risk to our stability at this point, we'd rather see the app go out "not playing nice" during startup (hopefully, an event that does not dominate usage). Moving to P4
Priority: P2 → P4
Whiteboard: [nsbeta3+] → [nsbeta3+][PDTP4]
per PDT: P3-P5 priority bugs changed from nsbeta3+ to nsbeta3- since we have more important work to do for Seamonkey. If you disagree, please state your case in the bug report and nominate for rtm. Thanks.
Whiteboard: [nsbeta3+][PDTP4] → [nsbeta3-][PDTP4]
I think sfraser's original report is a reasonable nomination for rtm.
rtm-, already noted in the bug that this isn't worth doing right now.
Whiteboard: [nsbeta3-][PDTP4] → [nsbeta3-][PDTP4][rtm-]
Removing adequated PDT grafitti.
