On boot, after I click Start/ Firefox I see the hourglass for a second or two: then it disappears for many seconds: and then, frequently, it reappears – all before my home page appears. Often the homepage never appears, and I have to repeat the process before I find myself connected to the internet.
Is it normal for the hourglass to come on and go off? Or is that a sign something is amiss with my pc?
Is there a way, other than to see a steady hourglasss (or an absent one), to monitor the startup process --- to observe if/when the boot process has failed?
Not a crucial question, I agree. But I sure would appreciate an explanation.
