...I wanted to replace that broken URL, so I set to work.

I tried to grep a part of the broken URL inside Icecat source code, but
I didn't succeed. Finally, downloaded Firefox source code, and found
something useful: a .js file with some preferences, the one involving
the URL included. ([your firefox package].../browser/app/firefox.js)

After finding its 'Icecat substitute', I just copied the line of code
from Firefox to Icecat and voilĂ ! It worked. I just want to share it
with you, as I think it should be fixed.

You have to head to /etc/icecat/syspref.js, and add the following line I
got from Firefox:


This will redirect you to Firefox Themes whenever you click on 'Get More
Themes', but you can change the URL to whatever you like. For example,
there is another theme repo in gnu.org (check
http://www.gnu.org/software/gnuzilla/addons.html#themes), which is
contained in an interesting addon repository.

I hope this would help to make Gnuzilla a better browser, although I
know it's a minor change. However, big things start with small things!

I'm attaching some info links in case you can check my code (I'm
uploading this fix to GitHub) or follow my projects.
