Submission Firefox too bloated to be compiled->

An anonymous reader writes: Firefox has gotten so large that it cannot be compiled with PGO (Profile-Guided Optimization) on a 32-bit linker anymore, due to the physical memory limitation of 3 GB of RAM.

This problem had happened last year with 2 GB, which was worked around by adding a /3GB switch to the Windows build servers. Now the problem is back, things aren't quite that simple anymore.

Two is not equal to three, even for large values of two.
