rest assured, no such restrictions for Arctic Fox.

We offer no guarantee, take it as it is, so no worries that the build
doesn't follow official guidelines regarding configuration, libraries
etc. If it doesn't work, you are on your own though...

It's liberal and open... if nobody gets nasty or has claims.

Sorry, perhaps I wasn't clear - it is working there. I develop and test
continuously on Devuam/amd64

The fact that other, less-mainstream platforms are mentioned is an add
on since we try to support them, but i jumped it into this browser
thread right because it works well on Devuan.

It works on i686 too - except on older ones without SSE2/SSE3 (although
I'd like to support them)

Example configuration files are shipped.

It was mentioned in the latter part, where I asked for help and people
knowing their way in the gecko code, maybe you skipped it! :)
