Line 3: Line 7:
Iceweseal is a fork [from Firefox] in the following senses:
 * no inclusion of trademarked Mozilla artowrk
 * backporting of security fixes to declared stable version
Beyond that, they will be basically identical.

Line 9: Line 9:
Also note that iceweseal is '''NOT''' Iceweasel from [http://www.gnu.org/software/gnuzilla/].

In DebianEtch and DebianSid the name of the package is [http://packages.debian.org/iceweasel iceweasel] (a transitional [http://packages.debian.org/firefox firefox] package exists).

Invoke it using one of this ways:
{{{
 /usr/bin/iceweasel
}}}
{{{
 /usr/lib/iceweasel/iceweasel
}}}

or simply
{{{
 iceweasel
}}}

For ["Gnome"] launcher, use
{{{
 /usr/lib/iceweasel/iceweasel "%s"
}}}

to open a concrete page.

== Plugin ==
The plugin directory is
 {{{
 /usr/lib/iceweasel/plugins
}}}

for more info on iceweasel plugins, refer to the plugins section of the ["Mozilla"] page.

It has ["Javascript"] enabled by default.
Line 44: Line 11:
 1. My iceweasel is consistently crashing on a website
 * First run iceweasel without loading any extensions and see if the problem persists. This can be done by using the -safe-mode option
{{{
    iceweasel -safe-mode
}}}
 * If the problem goes away, then it means that one of the installed extensions is the root cause of the problem. If not then read on!
 * Create a new user and try to reproduce the problem on the new user's account.
 * If there is no problem with iceweasel on new user's account, chances are that your ~/.mozilla/iceweasel/ directory is corrupt.
 * In order to see if the ~/.mozilla/iceweasel is infact corrupt or not, move it to some other directory and start iceweasel again
{{{
    mv ~/.mozilla/iceweasel ~/old_iceweasel
    iceweasel &
}}}
 * If the problem goes away, well and good. Otherwise you can ask for help on debian-user mailing list by providing all the relevant information like "the way to reproduce the crash", "the version of iceweasel you are using", and "the distribution you are using" etc., Finally, if you are confident that it is a bug in the iceweasel package please consider filing a bug against iceweasel package.

== Icons ==
If you would prefer a different icon for Iceweasel than the one that comes in the Debian package, you can use a script at [http://alphapapa.net/debian/iceweasel/] to replace them.
