Re: [Bug-gnuzilla] IceCat oddities with minified resources in 60.2.0

That's quite an interesting observation, because I have occasionally had a very similar problem with pre-webextension Gecko-based browsers, whereby the browser would encounter certain minified CSS, and would then hang with 100% CPU, and RAM usage getting higher and higher, for which reason I've had to force-stop the browser processes.

Often, it's been some font file, or some _javascript_ that's been the culprit instead, but not always.

The only remedy was to find the offending file by blocking all types of SCRIPT,FONT,CSS in classic NoScript's Application Boundaries Enforcer (ABE), and to test which type of file, and then which particular file has been acting up so much. After that, the hang-inducing file could be blocked individually; best even with a partial pattern match, or a regular _expression_ in NoScript's ABE rules to prevent newer versions of the same file from being blocked.

Alas, I have not seen the ABE configuration UI in webextension NoScript, nor any other complex, or granular and detailed ways of configuring the new-type NoScript.

Mark Weaver made a couple of important fixes yesterday for the Guix
package.  Please give it another try.
