Iceweasel is back!

Postby SwirlyPenguin » 2016-06-15 08:58

I didn't like the switch from "Iceweasel" to "Firefox", so I downloaded a package from the squeeze repositories and replaced some of my icons and installed this extension https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/iceweasel-branding/. Now I am happy again but I only want the package to provide the Iceweasel branding in the repos.

I can't see the point, myself.

Well, I prefer the name, and I have found another way, not sure if that is a good idea, though to add 3rd party repos. Uninstall Firefox first, if you have it and want Iceweasel.

Code: Select all
sudo touch /etc/apt/sources.list.d/gnewsense.list
echo deb http://archive.gnewsense.org/gnewsense ucclia main | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/gnewsense.list
echo deb-src http://archive.gnewsense.org/gnewsense ucclia main | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list.d/gnewsense.list

Great! Gonna install this first thing after I install stretch when it comes out. Thank you guys. The script I wrote does suit me for the time being.

Download the package and run it with gdebi or dpkg -i and it runs also with Jessie.

There are some differences between Iceweasel and Firefox. I use the addon "click and clean", which used to work on Firefox, but no longer works. When you try to set permissions it gives you a blank page that says it cannot find the address. Yet "click and clean" works on Iceweasel. Not sure what the differences are under the hood, but they are there and I continue to use Iceweasel myself.
