You may be right about it. I just relied on my own experience. Last time when I tried using Internet on a very old machine (Pentium MMX or Athlon counterpart) the only reasonable browser I could use was Opera 7.11. Firefox was too heavy for it, but you are correct, I tried a default Firefox package from Debian.
Next time I'll try Seamonkey or DSL's Firefox and upgrade the article then. Thanks.
