I am an old Firefox user that went to Explorer than Chromium on Lubuntu. Now that Chrome/Chromium are becoming bloatware, I am now with Brave but I would like to come back to Firefox.

I was excited to find Firefox Lite only to find out that it is not avail for desktop. I do not want to use add-on, web developer tool or any other fancy bloatware for my casual browsing.

When I need to debug, I switch to Firefox Developer Edition. Why does regular browser have a dev-tool embedded into it? What is next, an embedded Flight Simulator "A la" Microsoft Excel?

What I would suggest is Firefox Lite (or even Micro), Firefox (with show source only) and Firefox Developer Edition

Yes, you can make that request as "feedback" here: https://qsurvey.mozilla.com/s3/FirefoxInput/

But considering that 'Firefox Lite is built for Android it would need to be re-written by Mozilla for use on the Linux platform.

It would make more sense to install an app on Linux to allow it to run Android applications. https://www.pcworld.com/article/3040093/shashlik-brings-android-apps-to-linux-and-you-can-try-it-today.html

Or look for a Linux distro that has the capability of running Android apps built into the distro.

Could you redo your posting too much scrolling here.

It's a regional build for Android devices. China, Indonesia, India, The Philippines, or Thailand

Should I post that as a new feature request then?
