Bug Description

During tests of live usb persistent key I've been noticing this thing for quite a few tests now:
When you create the live usb persistent key, and you boot it, to test persistency you have to open firefox surf a bit, restart the usb key and see if history is there.
Well the very first time you boot the live usb persistent key and you click on firefox to start it, it takes quite long for firefox to start, about a couple of minutes.
After a couple of minutes it starts and if you click on it to do something it greys out and gets blocked for a while, then everything works again.
When you reboot the same usb live key this doesn't happen again, it happens only on the first boot of a new usb persistent key.
