I only have PM x86 installed.

Can we have PM x64 and x86 installed at the same time, and use either ?

Yes on 64 bit machine (Caution desktop & taskbar shortcuts will change). When I was using the 64 bit install. I renamed the shorcuts to know which I am using. I also redid the taskbar shortcuts as well. You can't open them at the sametime though.
Thanks for that info. +1
I'll have to play with this on my Test box.

Pale Moon (x86) v26 with one tab = 286 MB. I have quite a few extensions installed. I've noticed that it's been a bit higher then the previous versions.

That's not too bad. It's typical memory usage in any pretty much any FF variant.

I tried a few FF variants today.

FF Portable around 230Mb one tab:

Then I tried LightFireFox - still 170Mb one tab

Cyberfox is around 230Mb one tab

CometBird is not bad but it's insecure as it has not been updated in a very long time:

I guess I'm just way too used to Internet explorer :/
It at most with 3-4 tabs hit 200
Now PM hits it with 1 and can go more than that I find that wild cripes on x86 is just crazy I'm talking No add-ons at all

My lappy is x86 and low end dual core
Good to see I'm not alone but lappy is stuck with ie11 now geez I miss ie10

Acer and asus new build can handle PM x64 pretty good I do use them the most.

I did turn off a few options taskbar previews and search results i as type.. see how it goes.

You're welcome.

26.0.3 is now available for some bug fixes, no security fixes.
I'm running 26.0.3 x86 right now and no problems here so far.
