I must use vanilla firefox to use the latest pentadactyl add-on.

I'm accustomed to jumping through hoops like using alternative repositories or compiling from source to get vanilla firefox in Debian instead of iceweasel, but those repositories don't have arm builds and I doubt I can actually compile something that big on the physical raspberry pi. Is there any way to find a debian arm binary of firefox.

Why you doubt you can compile something "that" big. There are people (including me) that were able to compile kernel and so on (approx 10 hours :).

If you don't want to do native compilation on your pi you can always use cross-compiler. I can recommend you linaro compiler (or being more accurate toolchain).

I actually meant the space needed would be bigger than the SD card. I don't know why I didn't think to attach an external storage device for the compiling. – John Baber-Lucero Jan 1 '13 at 23:50
