==Narcis Garcia comment==

> There are GNU/Linux distributions that allow to install Mozilla Firefox
> AND Gnuzilla Icecat as different applications. This scenario makes sense
> to have different paths for user's profile, same as makes sense to have
> different paths for software in the system.

==Tiberiu comment==

> Similarly, GNU has decided to put IceCat in a directory called icecat
> (instead of firefox). However, this is a half-measure since icecat is in
> the parent directory .mozilla.
> To summarize, we already have:
> ~/.thunderbird -> ~/.icedove
> ~/.mozilla/firefox -> ~/.mozilla/icecat
> The proposal is to go all the way and make:
> ~/.mozilla/icecat -> ~/.gnuzilla/icecat
> Thanks,
> Tiberiu
