Keep FireFox compiling and working on alt CPUs

Donation protected
Hi, my name is René Rebe. I have been doing OpenSource for over 20 years, including running the cross-compilable Linux Distribution T2 and keeping various hardware patches e.g. for the Sony PS3, Sgi Octane, Sun SPARC alive. All this already takes quite some time, but to do more, like fixing Firefox for PowerPC and SPARC to not crash, and keep it up-to-date for ARM and RISCV, I would like to ask for your help to fund this project. Additionally, I will be working on PS3 OtherOS++ support for running Linux as GameOS with direct RSX access for hardware-accelerated 3D, improving the SATA performance by queuing multiple requests and cleaning up and debugging the memory utilization and bandwidth-improved ps3fb rework. Supporting this fundraiser will help to improve support for non mainstream CPU architectures in the OpenSource Linux ecosystem.
