That is very nice.

There are 2 bugs that I have observed in IceCat:

1. When clicking with right mouse button on the links, first time,
IceCat is turning on sound device, or changing volume. I cannot
understand why is that necessary, as there was no media involved. This
is over and over again.

2. IceCat is always creating the file ~/Desktop, and doing nothing
with it. It should not be the IceCat's business to create that file. I
have no use of it, it makes no sense.

Thank you for the maintenance release.
