Description Kadir 2015-12-11 19:43:43 UTC
Description of problem: Firefox (42.0-2.fc23) is very slow to start. Sometimes it takes a couple of minutes to start. When I disconnect the network and then start Firefox everything is ok. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 42.0-2.fc23 How reproducible: Start Firefox a couple of times normally Actual results: Firefox is very slow to start Expected results: Fast startup Additional info: I have a very recent system (core i3-4330 with a Samsung 850 EVO SSD). Everything worked fine until some updates ago. I don't which update caused the problem. See bug from https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1225183 for the exact same problem.

> When I disconnect the network and then start Firefox everything is ok. That seems to be caused by slow/blocking DNS request or so. Please try another program when you see that in Firefox - I can reproduce it with mc too.
Comment 2 Kadir 2015-12-11 20:07:30 UTC
Thanks for the tip. Do you mean it is some kind of problem with my DNS settings from my ISP and/or modem/router or do you mean I should tinker with the DNS setting in the Networkmanager (because those settings I have never touched)
Comment 3 Martin Stransky 2016-02-29 14:09:08 UTC
It could be both. When DNS response is broken I see the same slow start on console application, like mc.
Comment 4 Fedora End Of Life 2016-11-24 14:10:32 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 23 is nearing its end of life. Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 23. It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '23'. Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version. Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not able to fix it before Fedora 23 is end of life. If you would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above. Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes bugs or makes them obsolete.
Comment 5 Fedora End Of Life 2016-12-20 16:56:10 UTC
Fedora 23 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2016-12-20. Fedora 23 is no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug. If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this bug. Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
