There was some solid research comparing Firefox 26 and Firefox 50 on XO
laptops (particularly on Fedora 18) not so many weeks ago in December and


Rough conclusion seems to be that Firefox 26 is ready-to-go if you want
that, but that it would take more work to get Firefox 50 compiling cleanly

Also if I recall Nathan Riddle also has a couple further details, that
might not have made it into the thread above, so I can put you in contact
with him directly if nec?
