After Thunderbird moved on 22 Sep. to libxul, I've seen it the first time, that TB takes long to startup. On 23. Sep. it was gone and fast again. But than I've seen this frequently again. First I thought this is me, but than I've read similar reports from other users in Mozillazine. See:

Since I've downgraded from the broken 15 Okt. build to a 13. Okt. build its now very extrem. TB now takes 5-10 seconds to start, after I click the dock icon.

If we had Bug 462862 - Implement start up performance tests for Thunderbird - we could catch these things at build time

you must have a very lean/fast system - I never get 5-10 sec startup :(

The 5-10 seconds was on my iMac8,1. But on my new MacBook its slower than it is on my iMac. But it depends on which build you use, some builds are fast and some builds are slow. At the moment I use a fast older build.
