First post here and hello everyone :)

I use Debian *wheezy" to run headless 4-watt Pogoplugs as a home cloud storage and whatnot, and over at Jeff Doozan forum they've added XFCE to access a GUI using RDP. Pretty cool, and Midori browser is the only working browser. Not a bad browser, but Iceweasel would be better because it accepts Ghostery and a couple of download managers that Midori won't.

I suspect there's not many others in the same boat. No one is going to use a 100-watt computer to browse on a 4-watt Pogoplug, but givena choice I'd much prefer Iceweasel and i don't see why Mirodi works and Iceweasel doesn't startup, let alone add an extension. I have the same symptoms as above, but don't want to add any additional Xservers beyond what works now. Any ideas or new revelations i'd sure appreciate. 8)

Oh, to clarify, I'd be accessing IW from a GUI that already works, but could use terminal emulator or make a special launcher if that might somehow help..

The OP is referring to this topic/thread,
http://forums.debian.net/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=121584#p574947
But the post was moved to it's own "new topic", here.

There is no way on earth this can run XFCE *and* Mozilla (under any name). Plugins only take more memory.

Get a Raspberry Pi
https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentati ... s/specs.md
(even less power, but can load a full Debian install)

If you want backup space and file sharing, get a cheap Ukrainian server
https://www.101domain.com/web-hosting-ua-ukraine.htm

They'll only get cheaper as the hryvna collapses.
Plus, most appear to be in english, the language of their government.
And they'll be too preoccupied (pun intended) to care about file sharing.
You will also be able to learn some very uselful skills in using *real* servers instead of the cloud crap.
