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:

@fgr I don't have that bug. In my case, I can't move tabs

@cb474 to bad that know they should try to release 3.6.7

cb474 commented on 2010-07-20 22:31

If people are interested, it looks like the Gnuzilla people will not upgrade Icecat to 3.6.6, because all it does is change one setting in the about:config. So Icecat won't be back in sync, as it were, with Firefox until the next upgrade.

An explanation can be found here, as well as insturctions on what about:config setting to change if you want the 3.6.6 "upgrade":

@ecolinux
for you probably IceCat works fine with the latest version of xulrunner. Not in my case: after I've compiled IceCat with xulrunner 1.9.2.6, I wasn't able to hear audio in any '.flv' file streaming.

Hello, i don't understand what you say about xulrunner. xulrunner-1.9.2.6 work with icecat 3.6.4 . where is the problème ?
but i compil with autoconf (who replace autoconf2.13) and xulrunner-19.2.6
_xulver=1.9.2.6
depends=('xulrunner=1.9.2.6' 'desktop-file-utils' 'mime-types' 'shared-mime-info')
makedepends=('zip' 'libgnomeui>=2.22.1' 'python' 'wireless_tools' 'autoconf')

Icecat seem work fine

@Ravenman: Or you could download the older version of xulrunner from Arch Rollback Machine: http://arm.kh.nu/search/. Use "pacman -U" to install it. Then edit the IgnorePkg line in pacman.conf and add xulrunner, so it doesn't get upgraded, with system upgrades. That's what I do when I'm waiting for Icecat to get upgraded to the latest version. Usually Icecat upgrades right away or withing a couple days, but this time the GNU OS people seem to be taking a longer time.

@Ravenman, IceCat needs exactly its xulrunner version, but you can use IceCat with lastest xulrunner, though. It isn't recommended, just "it works". I've been playing a bit and IceCat seems to be stable. Quick steps:

- pacman -Sd xulrunner
- Download lastest tarball and untar it.
- makepkg -d
- pacman -U icecat-3.6.4-1-${arch}.pkg.tar.xz

or just you can wait until Giuseppe release lastest version ;)
