Please build future TBB versions with optimization on Linux 32-bit x86 systems.
The Tor Browser Bundle is not built with optimization on Linux 32-bit systems. This seems to be the case ever since Tor Project shifted from using Firefox 10.xx ESR to newer Firefox bundles starting with Firefox 17.
As a result, the user interface while using these TBBs is incredibly painful. Dragging tabs, closing tabs, opening multiple tabs result in the browser hanging for up to 30 seconds.
While I agree that most modern laptops and desktops are being released as 64-bit, there are thousands of users (including this author) who use 32-bit systems.
Please release future TBB versions built with optimization or at least release a TBB version for Linux 32-bit systems that is built on Firefox ESR versions, as this would benefit all the thousands of privacy conscious people who are using Linux 32-bit systems.
I have heard that due to the usability issues with the new TBBs, people are downloading older versions of TBB (that were built on Firefox ESR) even though it might introduce a privacy risk and might open the door to easier fingerprinting. Hence, I think it is paramount to provide an alternative as soon as possible.
Thank you for taking the time to read this.
