Aborting...

Looks to me like the build failed @9:45.28. Any idea why? Failed twice, I should add. As I remember it same error both times.

well, it has another things disabled, options, etc. See this:

These days, Abrowser, Torbrowser and IceCat are similar, but you can use each for different purposes.

Works just fine but how is this different from the regular Firefox? All the privacy/security functions can be added to both by the extensions....

figue commented on 2019-09-25 16:40

I didn't update extensions, because when you start IceCat first time, all is updated online. Of course you can install every extension you want.

Tell me if something is wrong.

jaro3 commented on 2019-09-25 15:49

can get everything by installing the firefox extensions, looks good!

jaro3 commented on 2019-09-25 15:20

OK, compiled, installed OK but the tor and javascript blocking on-off buttons are missing!

Hi @jaro3

A binary source should go to icecat-bin package, not this which is built from sources.

About gpg2 error:

try to import the key manually, Maybe mozilla server was broken in the moment you try to get the key. Don't forget that if you are behind a proxy, gpg2 doesn't always work. Then you should use a workaround or comment gpg2 line.
