Bug 718846 and bug 719868 fixed this some time ago, but this regressed again, maybe with the maple merge.
Not maple. The about:home page is loaded into Gecko and showProgress is set to false, so no throbber is shown. BUT then the new tab is selected, to make it active, and Tab (or Tabs) has code to handle Tab:Selected" and it shows the throbber because the page is still loading.
renominating to see if this would fall under the new soft-blocking category.

Comment on attachment 613319 [details] [diff] [review] patch I don't like this because mState is not the same as the return of getState and that could lead to problems.
