Nicely done Peter !

Although the use of a "patch" was an acceptible (and imaginitive) solution to the problem - the best option was a proper port that could be run natively on the A9. Peter's port is just that, this brings all modern RISC OS platforms into line (a good thing IMHO).

As to the problem with running on VRPC-Adjust surely that's not a show stopper as Firefox can run *natively* under Windows (upon which VRPC has to run anyway). Can't understand why someone would want to run Firefox slowly under emulation when the native (x86) solution is available...
