I've made some checks and lowered "security.sandbox.content.level" to 1 (default is 4). Perhaps a bit better approach, instead of disabling completely sandbox.

@Terrorizer patch process can take a long time, depending on your machine capacity.

Good news is that IceCat was added to Chaotic repo recently:

use this patch:

Please change 'python' to 'python2' in the makedeps, because the package called 'python' now provides version 3.1.2 and it throws this error while building icecat:
/usr/bin/python ../toolkit/xre/ --print-buildid > buildid
File "../toolkit/xre/", line 17
SyntaxError: invalid syntax

That's like 2 changes, what took them so long...

3.6.10 is up.

This new version includes all changes made upstream in Firefox 3.6.10.

Now the privacy extension gives an alert everytime a bookmark containing
javascript code is stored.

Now, by default, HTML5 local storage is disabled. If you desire it,
then it must be manually enabled.

@captainhaggy: Thank you. It worked for me.

If the question appears
==> Edit PKGBUILD ? [Y/n] ("A" to abort)
Say yes, edit the line you see aboth and enter a > at the position, where you can see it here in the comment.

It lookls like this
depends=("xulrunner=${_xulver}" 'desktop-file-utils')

and has to be changed to
depends=("xulrunner>=${_xulver}" 'desktop-file-utils')

Now icecat is able to install again.

Thanks :)
There are indeed no file conflicts between firefox-beta and icecat.

@cantabile there's no reason, I think this comes from an old version. I'll remove in the next release.

Is there some very good reason for icecat to provide firefox? I want to install firefox-beta, but pacman won't let me, because it conflicts with firefox, and icecat provides firefox. There should be no file conflicts between the two, after all firefox and icecat can live on the same system just fine.
