    Will give it a go – looks interesting! For those who wish to restrain memory usage in Firefox try Firemin – it does make a difference!

    Firebug does not seem to work in Light 35.0 (installed on Debian Jessie) It did work initially for few days but stopped altogether after that. Any suggestions for a fix?

    I’ve been using it (light firefox) for about a week now, and I love it. My regular Firefox was constantly thrashing….light firefox does not thrash at all…..so what causes all the thrashing in the first place…anyone know ?
    Does Light Firefox use SQLITE ?

    Firefox and many other web browsers of new generation use recursive functions witch causes piling up of useless memory.
    That is why Firefox uses a lot of memory.

    i come a little bit late but now in december 2015 it is the fastest I have tried and I have tried them all for Windows 10. I allways hated FF because it was slow but this is the best for W 10

    but not compatible with any of your add-ons, which is the whole point of using Firefox in the first place

  15. Firefox will also be incompatible with Firefox add-ons soon, so neither project has a bright future.

    Well hopefully a bunch of engineers will quit Mozilla and start a new lightweight browser that supports lots of powerful addons, like Firefox originally was.
