I appreciate these reports, thank you!

Thank you for this.  There are definitely some problems with extensions
in the unofficial IceCat preview.  I've also noticed behavior that's
consistent with what you've described above, and not only with HTTPS
Everywhere.  At one point I noticed that although I had LibreJS
installed and enabled, its icon was no longer visible in the navigation
bar, and nonfree JavaScript was being run.

Obviously these are very severe problems, and I will look into them as
soon as I can.  Unfortunately, due to other urgent matters occupying my
attention, it will be at least a week, and possibly two, before I can

If anyone is able to investigate these issues in the meantime, I would
be grateful.  Proposed fixes would of course be ideal, but sharing any
observations or proposals that might move the process along would be
most welcome.
