Description

In trainings with journalists in NYC, many launch Tor Browser but assume it didn't work or broke because it didn't instantly open, so they'll mercilessly and impatiently try again until their mouse wears out; They're not used to applications being slow because they've never ran an operating system from outside their fast built-in SSD drives.

UX Recommendation:
  • Create a Gnome notification letting the user know that the Tor Browser is starting up. This will be enough to let them know that at least the attempt at launching Tor Browser is working so they can chill while they wait for it to open.

Could you please test 3.9~rc1 (or 3.9 if it's already out)? They're doing better in this respect :)

Thanks, I just took a look in 3.9 RC1 and the spinning wheel is definitely an improvement. Once 3.9 is out and I have another training session, I'll circle back if trainees are still extra-clicking.
