Hello Folks,

Bug 1372656 landed this morning, which means that Nightly now loads the
root certificate authority trust database asynchronously and shouldn't
block the main thread*. This should make startup faster, but it's a bit
experimental and improving PSM/NSS startup time is a work in progress
overall. There's some more context in bug 1370834.

If you notice any strange behavior related to certificates (e.g.
unexpected "Your connection is not secure" errors, missing EV indicators
(the larger green lock icon when you visit your bank), etc.), please
file a bug in PSM:

Thanks to everyone who made this possible!


* the catch is that if any thread needs to query the trust of a
certificate, that thread will block until this operation has completed.
In the worst case, we should be no slower than before.
