The likely way to do this is to move the loading of the blocklists to an AsyncTask. The GUI would be loaded while the AsyncTask was running, but no website would be loaded. When the AsyncTask was finished the website would load.

This would allow a message to be displayed while the blocklists were loading and also to color code the GUI to match the theme (so that a white screen doesn't display while the the blocklists are loading).

Specific care must me taken to prevent the manual loading of a website while the blocklists are loading (otherwise a crash will likely ensue) and to work with Orbot proxying if it is enabled.
