Did you compile it yourself or did you install binarys?
I compiled Firefox 0.8 on my Indigo2 R10k and after 8 hours of hard
compile work the resulting binary did only one thing: Generate a core
dump. Thank you. :-(
I have pre build binarys from nekochan for Firefox 0.8, but they are
MIPS4. It runs well on the Octane R12k, but no go on the Indigo R4k4 or
the Indy R4k6.

BTW: I still won't call Firefox small and lightweight. Nearly 300 MB of
source code, 8 hours of compile time on a 195 MHz R10k and it still
feels "slow" on a 300 MHz R12k with 2 GB RAM. I highly doubt that there
will come any lightweight food out of the Mozilla kitchen.
