@cstkingkey wow I didn't think Firefox could be so light, tanks a lot.
I want to use light as my default browser on an ancient P4 with XP-SP3 but I'm having some issues
https://mega.co.nz doesn't work :(
I get a certificate error that won't let me add an acceptation

This Connection is Untrusted

You have asked Light to connect securely to mega.co.nz, but we can't confirm that your connection is secure.
mega.co.nz uses an invalid security certificate. The certificate is not trusted because the issuer certificate is unknown. (Error code: sec_error_unknown_issuer)

Usually when I get this error code in Firefox I can add an exception, is this Light's problem or mega doesn't like a tweaked Firefox and they're the one's refusing the connection.
I know kim(dot)com has a bad reputation but 50GiB of free storage is 50 GiB of free storage, and I have a lot of stuff there I need to access.
Tried Light 27 and 26 VC build classic and modern skin.
Tanks a lot.

light remove most of the certificates. there are two ways to solve the problem.
one, find the cert the website uses (for example, use ie) and add it to light.
two, download the nssckbi.dll in the other folder and replace the one in light with it.

Hello,

I tried to install the ICC 64bit Version(new Design) on my Dektop PC (Windows 8.1 64bit). the installer reports - not enough space on disk. then he simply deletes the selected folder

How can I reproduce the problem? I use a 50m vhd, it didn't delete any folder or file.

I can provide additional information: I created a folder directly under c: for some portable apps (C:\potable_apps). There I created an empty folder (lightFirefox), which I chose as storage Target for Installation. My HD (SSD 128 GB) has a free Memory about 24 GB. After the Installer reports not enough Memory he kills the -empty- folder.

Seems like an awesome project. I was trying to port it over to Linux
(SolydX-64, a Debian based distro)
anyway, I think the patches I'm using are for a different version of Firefox.
Not certain what Firefox version the patches are for - http://sourceforge.net/p/lightfirefox/code/

There were a few minor inconsistencies with naming here and there,
but I think the main problems I ran into were in these files:
browser/modules/Makefile.in
dom/base/Navigator.cpp
ipc/ipdl/Makefile.in

I think there might have been a couple makefiles that were renamed to moz.build perhaps??

As far as I can tell though, it looks like a solid build.
The way it's set up looks like some good programming skills.
Keeping consistent with the design and all.

If you can give me an idea which source code I should try
26, 27, stable, nightly?? That would be great.
Then I can try again, see if I can get it going here. ty.

The patch at http://sourceforge.net/p/lightfirefox/code/ are mainly written by xunxun (https://github.com/xunxun1982/pcxfirefo ... st/mini/28). He claims the patches are based on firefox 28 .

My Light refuses to load GMail, anybody else has this problem. It is OK on yahooMail and other websites except it wouldnt load my Gmail page always shows a blank page.On the full Firefox it is OK, I used Firefox all the while since 2002 starting with Netscape (never on IE) only now on my new Win8.1 I am starting to rediscover IE and Outlook.

It works fine for me. It sounds more like a network problem.

I can guarantee that there is no virus in light.

Which version did you try? icc or vc builds? new or classic theme? Can you try to run it under a win7 pc?
