I'm using Gnome. If I make a copy of the firefox launcher and remove
the %u option from the command, I don't experience 15 seconds of
seeing "Starting Firefox Web Browser" button on the Windows List
applet and the busy mouse pointer.

I had thought Firefox was busy initializing, but now I find removing 
the %u makes Firefox seem ready for action immediately.

The %u option is explained here:


Why is this option causing Firefox to give the impression of having
a slow startup?
