Don't know if this is just noise or not... since measurements are taken from
stop watch.  But, it's probably worth time to investigate... since the other
measurement "Navigator -> Mail & Newsgroups" did not change much, and there is a
large delta for "Open Preference Dialog".  Were there any xul changes in pref
dialog recently??

Quoting Randell Jessup's response to posting...

Here is Sarah's Performance measurements doc:
Ben? any comments?
Summary: open pref dlg slowed by ~.70 (18-26%) cross the board btw 7/26-8/2 → open pref dlg slowed by ~.70 (18-26%) cross the board btw 7/26-8/2
Target Milestone: --- → mozilla0.9.4
cc'ing jen, who did the measurements while i was on vacation during that period.
also cc'ing blake (what the heck :).
Component: XP Apps → Preferences
Keywords: perf
just to clarify --jen did the tests for the past 3 weeks. the big jump occurred
only with the last set of data. i remember she had sent me email about noticing
the diff: "These numbers were a higher than last week...I did an average of 5
[measurements] versus three, but results seemed fairly consistent."

could we get a measurement with a trunk build this week and see what the trend 
yep, the data will be there [see URL] --assuming that the network is behaving
and allows downloads *sigh*.
updated the page with this week's data.

interesting [trunk]: dialog opening is better than last week's. perhaps last
week's was a fluke...?

also, i find it odd that panel switching is worse this week... hm, perhaps it
might be in the difference btwn my dexterity and Jen's. *shrug* (although that
might not account for the dialog opening measurements...}

also #2: i added 6.1 RTM baseline measurements at the end of the page.

This is not going to get resolved in mozilla0.9.4. Pushing out to mozilla1.0.1
and reassigning to pchen

seth spitzer did quite a few checkins recently that have really given mozilla
some perf, killed some mem-leaks too.

it's too late to figure out this slow down. we don't even have a check-in log to
begin with.  Let's just close this bug and move on.
