Yes! That did it. Thank you very much.

@EndUserOnly can you try if this builds fine?

Seems that rust 1.38 breaks ESR60.0 build, so I've disabled stylo to workaround, but I don't know the overall performance.

Instead, you can build a testing release based on Fedora sources, available here:

unfortunately I do not have the skills to help with that.

I'm trying if this patch solves the build errors:

@EndUserOnly what version are you building: 60.9.0 or this https://mirror.lnx.im/icecat/testing/icecat-68.1.0-1.src.tar.gz ?

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: http://git.savannah.gnu.org/cgit/gnuzilla.git/tree/makeicecat

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....
