Re: Missing Tor Button

It was not intentional.  I cannot speak for the IceCat project, but I
think it's safe to say that they intend to continue including the Tor
button in IceCat.

I see.

There are several unresolved issues in Guix's preview of IceCat-68,
which has *not* yet been released by the IceCat project, and probably
does not yet meet the privacy standards of the IceCat project.  The only
reason I updated to this unfinished version in Guix was because the
alternative (leaving users to use a browser with many published security
flaws) seemed worse.

I understand. It was a good call though.

I'm currently overloaded with other urgent tasks unrelated to IceCat,
but I'm doing what I can to gradually fix the remaining issues in Guix's
preview of IceCat-68.

Regarding the Tor button, I guess that it has something to do with the
following message, which I see printed in the text output when I run
'icecat' manually from a shell:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
1572378945089	addons.xpi-utils	WARN	addMetadata: Add-on tortm-browser-button@jeremybenthum is invalid: Error: Invalid addon ID: expected addon ID tortm-browser-button@jeremybenthum, found undefined in manifest(resource://gre/modules/addons/XPIDatabase.jsm:2715:15) JS Stack trace: 
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

Would you like to look into it?  I would be grateful for the help.

Sure, I can try.

In the meantime, you could try installing the extension from here:


although I caution that many addons on that site are nonfree software,
so please make sure to always check the licenses.

I always had to download extensions from there.
Is there a unique place to download extensions for IceCat?
