You would be surprise what a boot or restart will do even when it is not requested.

Back in the S/3, S/32 days, we used to tell customers "When all else fails, IPL". Initial Program Load for those too young to remember.

This day and age in only takes a few seconds to reboot; how long did it take way back when in the S/3, S/32 days?

Now days many use Sleep and Hibernate and don't get all the good effect a Clean Boot or Reboot does.

5 minutes or so, depending on the model of CPU. Remember, the OS probably had .01% of the number of lines of code that current OSs have and maybe 4 to 16 MB of memory to load it into.

It's weird, it seems that they fixed some startup crashes in this release... funny thing I never had an issue with that.

Well, in case this helps anyone, for people that likes to play with the Dev/Beta release, Mozilla is activating "experiments" for some people in the 45b branch. This means that, they will selectively change settings on choosen users to enable Electrolisys in it's current state (multithreading) and Asycronous Panning and Zoom (supports mouse and touch screens currently). This, in most cases, and with capable GPUs, will increase browsing/page scrolling performance, but can break some extentions. Mozilla will determine if your extentions are incompatible with Electrolisys and enable (or not) this last accordingly.

If you are interested in looking for a particular extention(s) and it's compatibility with Electrolysis / e10s, you can visit https://www.arewee10syet.com/ to check.

It's supposed that, for realease channel, FF46 will enable Electrolisys too, not confirmed though (can be enabled on FF47 instead).

Currenty, Electrolysis seems to support "partial multithreading", this means that you will get a "firefox.exe" process, along with a "plugin-container.exe" one, but, in case another plugin needs to be executed (like flash), another and last instance of this process will appear. By now they share memory, and it doesn't quite work like Chrome's.

Stay tunned https://wiki.mozilla.org/Releases

Hope this info is useful...
