I haven't tried this in the current version, but still installing custom profiles is unsupported (and an ugly hack to begin with).

i use gnu icecat 3.6 (the prebuilt debs from https://launchpad.net/~gnuzilla-team/+archive/ppa) in conjunction with jondofox (which is a security enabled userprofile for firefox browsers including some addons,
e.g. cs-lite:


when having installed the jondofox-profile (maybe just cs-lite would do it), after closing, icecat wont start anymore until removing extensions.cache, extensions.ini and extensions.rdf from the user-profile folder (or after purging cs-lite).

there are some errors logged to the console, like this:

Error: uncaught exception: [Exception... "Component returned failure code: 0x8000ffff (NS_ERROR_UNEXPECTED) [nsIPrefBranch.getIntPref]" nsresult: "0x8000ffff (NS_ERROR_UNEXPECTED)" location: "JS frame :: chrome://browser/content/urlbarBindings.xml :: :: line 18" data: no]

Error: uncaught exception: [Exception... "Component returned failure code: 0x8000ffff (NS_ERROR_UNEXPECTED) [nsIPrefBranch2.getBoolPref]" nsresult: "0x8000ffff (NS_ERROR_UNEXPECTED)" location: "JS frame :: chrome://browser/content/browser.js :: allTabs_readPref :: line 8038" data: no]


recommending to not to use the jondofox-profile or cs-lite (which isn't working from the general addons-page anyway at the moment, but only from the jondofox-package) would not be enough.

--> maybe other plugins or usage situations of gnu icecat 3.6 are affected too!?


since i am not sure whether this bug is just to be found in the prebuild binary-packages from https://launchpad.net/~gnuzilla-team/+archive/ppa i am to submit the bugreport to jondofox (some time before), gnuzilla (now!) and the icecat launchpad maintainers (in a minute).

kind regards
