Could you provide builds for x32?

Asked by Pedro Pedruzzi on 2016-09-16

Hi! x32 ABI provides the x86_64 benefits keeping the memory footprint as low as i686 (by using 32 bit pointers).
Browsers are one of the most memory hungry applications in the day-to-day desktop usage.
So could you build for x32 as well?
I can provide technical help if needed.
Thank you.

There are 32bit builds of Firefox. They are available in the repositories and are easily installed using Software Centre.

Can you help with this problem?
