Firefox on Pine64
#1
3.10.101-4-pine64-longsleep and Ubuntu Mate 16.04
2GB Ram, Firefox 48

What is your experience with Firefox on Pine64? Using the "top" utility I find that it can quickly absorb a ton of cpu. If I limit myself to 2 or 3 tabs it works ok without using most of the cpu resources. The chrome browser failed to install on this system so stuck with Firefox atm.

Firefox has been broken on arm64 for some time.

... I use the midori browser; has a lite foot-print and is mostly stable.

Hmmm, Gmail complains that I am using an old version of Safari. Then they say "detected using an older version of Chrome' please upgrade. Still ..... will give midori a go.
