on startup, takes a long time for start page to appear
When you start Fennec, you see a blank page and the "Enter Search or Address" stuff in the URL bar, but not the start page for a long time. When you reload the start page, it's very quick (the add-ons appear a bit later, but there's a throbber). Overall, this makes startup seem slow. On an n900 using my profile (not helpful, I know) it's about 18 seconds after the Fennec UI appears before the start page fills in, with the add-ons coming in about 1s after the rest of the page (which is fine).
18 seconds is an amazingly long time. Without Weave installed, using my normal profile on my N900, it takes about 2 seconds.
This patch removes using the extension manager to check for weave. It depends on the weave code in browser only now. I also moved the script code to the bottom of the HTML in the hopes that the HTML part of the page will display faster (web dev trick).
