What distribution of Linux are you running, and what version of Firefox? I ask because this problem was solved several years ago.

Just so you understand FF is now on 3.5 . FF1.5 was out for a long time, as was FF2 and FF3. I do not think that even FF1.5 (much less 1) is still supported. Even RHEL5(only installs extremely stable stuff) is running FF3 by default.

Here is a list of lightweight browsers:

Search around, I am sure there are tons of other choices (currently supported) that are not on that list.

If you had bothered to read the link:

Quote:
It means that it can pretty much deal with everything that Firefox can in terms of HTML, CSS and Javascript support. It is really a mozilla browser stripped down for speed.
Referring to Kazehakase.

Edit: Read the comnet section as well. There are quite a few other suggestions there.
