Doesn't help, because there are so many rubbish and invasive scripts jamming up the works, and they very quickly use up all available memory. Also running in ram
, quietly perusing Porteus docs some five minutes, when all of a sudden my HD goes haywire, computer usage 100%, swap space being devoured at a terrific rate of knots. Only way out being to kill Firefox. Haven't yet managed to get my hands on the miscreant script. The only recourse so far is to use the FF extension Silent Block
, which will block any and every suspect site that one lists.

Result of all the above reading, reckon there is a good case for a magic folder pairing on ~/.mozilla, if have understood correctly.
