slow startup with nightly 51 and e10s add-ons

Hello, when i run nightly 51 without add-ons, all works fine, the startup time is good. But when I add for instance "Fireftp", "ublock origin" and "gtranslate" (compatibles with e10s), nightly starts on a blank page, I must wait a few seconds and then about:home appears. Is it a kind of bug? Because when e10s is disabled, there is no blank page and waiting time.

Thank you :)

Is the problem when you use all those add-ons, or any of them? Have you contacted their support? Some add-ons do not work with some other add-ons.

The problem occurs when I install one add-on only. Then if I had another the startup is a bit longer. I haven't contacted their support because it is a problem of FF : each add-on has an impact on the startup time. If I enable the three add-ons I mentionned above, they work well.

Could it be a problem with e10s? I may open a bug report (?).

Any one, or a specific one? I've called for more help.

Any one... As I said each of these add-ons slows down the startup.
