From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:0.9.2) Gecko/20010628 BuildID: 200162815 When I 1st start my machine and start mozilla, it goes straight to the profile manager without seeing the mozilla intro screen (the fire breathing lizard). If I close it and re-open it, sometimes I get a new browser window almost instantly (faster than IE 5.5!!!) :-) Other times I get the fire breathing lizard and the profile manager again. Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: 1.start the computer, open mozilla with quick start (this part works great!) 2. close mozilla 3.open it again.
Reporter: Do you close Mozilla with File/exit (CTRL+Q) ? File/exit = mozilla will closed completly (with the mozilla turbo task) or do you see this when you close mozilla with the "x" ?

WFM on a trunk build which was pulled after bug 89060 was fixed. Are people seeing this on the branch?
Date: Tue, 3 Jul 2001 12:18:54 -0700 (PDT) From: CM K <email@example.com> To: Matti@epost.de I closed using the "x" I would like to have the quick start feature work the entire time I have the computer running no matter how I close the program
on win2k, with multiple profiles: 1) start '.\mozilla -turbo' : program starts but shows no UI 2) double-click mozilla program : profilemanager comes up, choose profile, browser starts at home page of selected profile 3) click 'X' window control : browser window disappears, but program remains alive 4) double-click mozilla program : browser starts at home page of selected profile 5) repeat 3 and 4 for however many times you want 6) do 'File->Exit' in last browser window : browser window disappears and program completely shuts down 7) double-click mozilla program : splash screen comes up, then profile manager, select profile, browser starts at home page of selected profile 8) click 'X' close control : browser window closes and program completely shuts down 9) double-click mozilla program : splash screen comes up, then profile manager, select profile, browser starts at home page of selected profile 10) do 'File->Exit' : browser window closes and program completely shuts down Okay, so that is how this is supposed to work, right Conrad? This is not a bug.

That sounds exactly right to me. I'm not sure how this feature is going to be explained in the documentation. It needs to be made very clear what turbo mode is doing (keeping the app alive with no windows). Also, the difference between closing the last window and choosing File/Exit needs to be explained. If not, I bet many others will expect this: "I would like to have the quick start feature work the entire time I have the computer running no matter how I close the program"
Yes, I think explaining this in the documentation clearly is critical (and it may be difficult for some people to "get" the idea, even then). It also might be an idea to place a shortcut in the start menu folder for the browser that would be called "start turbo" or some such. This would allow people to have easy access to restart the 'stay-resident' mode if they have done 'File->Exit'. [But, the ability to do File->Exit and have the application completely exit is necessary as without it, there is no way do a clean and complete restart of the program (leaving behind any weird state that a user may have worked themselves into)]. Todd : are we considering such a shortcut? Should we? Also, who owns the documentation/spec for this feature and exactly what it should do from an end-user's perspective.

I'm not sure if the idea was dropped or if it's something that is intended but not there yet.
