Do you have the diffs in a source code repo for what you had to change for your Windows builds? I remember having to make a few mods after setting up a Firefox build environment and pulling in the icecat source.

original links shall work now, doing 32bit build now and then I'll update with the wordpress page for people to look for updated builds when I get to it.

seems I accidentally did a reply instead of a reply all, I'm rebuilding and adding 32bit builds as well. I'm going to put up instructions and download links on my domain as well as trying to get these builds done as PGO builds.

sorry for the lateness of this. Desktop PSU kinda died and so I compiled this on my laptop which is fairly underpowered
I've only compiled the 64bit binary for now, I get my new power supply unit tomorrow so I can do a 32bit build then

I'm sorry to inform that the files have been removed. There are no latest release for Windows available without them. Why did you remove them?

Keep in mind, this is an unofficial compile. But at least it's a new binary for 52.3.0

One thing you could try is disabling _javascript_ entirely. When you go to the home page of icecat (pressing alt+home on my computer), you will see a checkbox "Disable _javascript_".

I do this on my machine (which is not Windows) and BBC News displays well. Some things (e.g. videos) will not be functional as they require non-free _javascript_ to run.

Hi Felix,

Thanks for your reply. I've successfully downloaded and installed
IceCat from that URL you kindly sent me. I realise that the Windows
versions will lag behind the Linux versions a little.

I'm a little concerned that I'm not going to be able to use IceCat
very much as it doesn't seem to work very well. The first website I
tried was the BBC News website - a trusted source that I use all the
time. It didn't display at all in the way I expected, showing giant
graphic icons instead of the normal size, failing to arrange the
sections of the screen in their normal places and not presenting the
page very well at all.

I appreciate that this may be because the BBC is coding it in a way
that demands non-free components to run but sadly if I can't use my
preferred websites with this browser, I'll be going back to one of the
others I use.
