    Are any of these x64? Seems hard to find. I'm using Pale Moon since I always know where to get the x64 version.

    Hey Miles, unfortunately not; I think Waterfox is still the only 64bit version of Firefox.

    Pale Moon also has an x64 build. But it can be annoying when it decides to be unresponsive. It seems to run pretty well unless I'm using Download Statusbar with a large download. Resume doesn't always resume after a crash.

    In light of that, here's a feature in Nightly possibly worth checking out:
    "e10s", a manner of sandboxing individual processes/tabs for, reportedly, a vast improvement in performance, stability and security, allbeit still in the testing stage.
    I'm still trying to wrap my head around it all!

    Thanks for that. For now I'm going with FF 32 bit 29 as default with classic theme restorer AddOn. Seems fairly snappy.

    New 'e10s' sandbox feature in Firefox Nightly not seeming to work properly, (separately from the UI), as Chrome does and uses more RAM!
