Interesting.  Thanks.  For banking & etc. you have a dedicated user id 
and login?

Drifting off the subject, but the banking I use invokes javascript. I 
would have thought that unnecessary.  Should be possible to accomplish 
the results with processing on the server and HTML5 on the client.
Technology bloat?

OK, thanks.  The complaint at firefox startup here is probably only 
following a crash of firefox.   Curt's suggestion to set 
browser.sessionstore.max_resumed_crashes to 0 seems appropriate.

> Does the behaviour reported in your OP cause you *great* concern?

No.  Just wastes time.  Opening a simple local HTML home page requires 
roughly a minute rather than roughly a second.

Thanks for mentioning that.
