There seems to be a change in how restartless Add-ons are called / started since 2012-03-20. Before (Mar.19) it worked as advertised, but since then it's not starting any more. bootstrap.js is loaded, compartment is created, but then, nada.
Seems to be a jetpack issue. Aurora (Fx13) and Beta (Fx12) is fine.
This is a very cool add-on. It's great to see attention being put towards making Firefox start faster. :)
I know this isn't probably the proper place to report a bug, but there is no contact info on Mike Hommey web site and no support link for the About Startup Add-on on it's AMO page.
So, I'm using WinXp 32bit SP3, Tested on Fx10b4, Aurora 11.0a2 and Nightly 12.0a1, ever since updating About Startup 0.1.5 to 0.1.6 on 2012/01/10, I have been getting "undefined variables" in the about:startup results.
Note: Reverting back to About Startup 0.1.5 fixes the problem...
A millisecond precision is pointless here. Users I think find it short, medium or long to have an application start, but don't require a stopwatch precision.
All add-ons are worthy for the commitment of their author but, frankly, some are really totally useless. IMHO of course.
The addon works for me:)
Just delete the 'startup.log' in your profile folder to clear old "Start Up" times data.
One startup time is 1311105. Even if that's milliseconds, it's still 21 minutes. And there's no way to clear the log, and there should be a decimal point with the value called "seconds" instead of "milliseconds", and some time intervals are negative numbers even though we're not in a hyperbolic spacetime.

Great. Working fine.
Thanks for this, this is really needed for addon devs!
Nice Add-On, but I have a feature request:
About Startup should show the startup time of each installed Add-On.
This way I see what Add-Ons take much time to load and I can consider deactivating the Add-Ons that cause a huge delay.
Hi, great addon
One feature request: add notes so you can remeber what5 you did to impact the startup time eg
Installed addon XYZ, Changed setting ABC
Near the build id would be good
Very useful, but doesn't properly when a crash occurs.
Sometimes, it produces some "NaN" values, and the averages are not calculated properly.
Please make a fix that ignores these NaN values when computing averages.
Idem for negative numbers....
"No restart required"
Had to restart Fx to view data. :|
Cool though. Thanks.
This is a good tool to measure the startup of Firefox. Firefox startup are terrible slow with several addons. Mozilla don't put a function by default to measure the load time of Firefox and the addons installed.
A feature wanted by users as first priority. This issue was infact the most voted by Mozilla users, but Mozilla developers don't care it.
I hope you can make a version to measure the load time of every addon, because every addon slows down the startup but there are heavy addons and light addons and there's no way to understand which the ones and the others. Thank you very much
