reverted back to old browser start functionality + startup notification rant



With FC3 the launcher script would check to see if firefox was already
running and if so, it would simply open a new window.  Now FC4 is back
to the old way where it attempts to do startup notification and hijacks
the cursor with the 'hour glass' until startup notification times out.
I wish I didn't feel like gnome startup notification was a huge hack,
but I do (can it just be disabled?).  Yet, when I click on a url in
gaim, or evo it opens it properly in a new tab or window (according to
my tab browser preferences). What gives? I would assume they all execute
the same script right?  Also is it entirely necessary for startup
notification to hijack the cursor with the hourglass just because a
program is starting?  Is it unreasonable that i'd want to immediately go
to the Applications menu and open another application while the other is
loading?  The 'hour glass' isn't exactly a user friendly pointing
device. :)
