Thanks, I disabled the Flash and HTML uploaders and did some more
testing earlier today. The tests were less formal because I didn't
record deviation. Firefox 35.0.1 and 38 in Ubuntu 14.04 LTS x64 both
take on average 19 seconds (Measured from 'Sending request to' to 'Waiting for'). I also ran some of
the example tests again and got the same average, 19 seconds. So there's
no discernable difference here. If everything you plan to try doesn't
work and you can reproduce in a docker container then send me the
container and I'll try it here to see if I get different results.
