Re: Firefox launcher option %u cause of "Starting Firefox Web Browser" button?

When I launch Firefox from the Applications Menu, there always appears a 2nd

time.

This gives me the impression that Firefox starts very slow on Fedora. (F9
and F10).

Just now I discovered that if create a new launcher and remove the %u option
from the command, Firefox starts up immediately!

Why is the %u launcher option causing this poor user experience?

This is just a guess since I am not sitting at my F10 box but does the new launcher option have "launch feedback" enabled? Does the old one? I believe that it's an option when you create the new launcher.
