Hi,

Just a quick question about something I've just experienced today on the IceCat browser. I'm a newbie, I installed this browser like 3 weeks ago for the first time.

Today, suddenly I tried to open a private window on Icecat using the same shortcut as on Chrome, CTRL + shift + N and it just opened a new window (without menus or bookmarks bar as I have on a normal window) that always shows the same address:

http://www.contactosecreto.com/slp18m1?p=362295&prid=138646&pi=slp18m1

That looks a lot like a scammy sex website. Why is that on my IceCat?? Immediately I imagined that the browser had been compromised by some extension, but I only have these installed:

*HTML5 Video Everywhere! 0.3.4
*HTTPS-Everywhere 5.1.6
*IceCatHome 1.0
*SpyBlock 2.6.9.0
*GNU LibreJS 6.0.1.3

They just look legit to me. Is there any problem with any of them? How do I delete that shortcut association value? Can't find anything about that on the net.

Thanks a million in advance.
