When I am on the start page in Abrowser and click on "install GNU/IceCat" Gdebi starts but it is empty. I've been able to download some .deb files and install them but some .deb files don't download but just opens an empty Gdebi window. How can I fix this?

It's not supposed to be using GDebi. GDebi is for installing deb files, the link in Abrowser for IceCat is a reference to a package in the repo. The default program that apt links are opened with is Apturl-gtk, but it seems installing GDebi screws that up.

I uninstalled Gdebi and now I am able to install IceCat. Thank you! :)

Deb files? I thought Abrowser installed it via APT, but OK.

Try this instead of GDebi to install them:
-CD to the directory of the deb files
-Execute "sudo dpkg -i [DEB FILE]"

If installation still doesn't work, you can try installing with the source/using binaries at http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/gnuzilla/31.2.0/

EDIT: Above beat me to the punch, and has a better solution than I.

I thought it was a .deb file since Gdebi opened when I clicked on the link. I solved the problem by uninstalling Gdebi. Thank you! :)

sudo apt-get install icecat

Don't download some random .deb for something that's in the repo!

Created a bug report:

You can either just do something like apt-get install icecat instead of clicking on the link, or you can uninstall GDebi. Both of these work, though the former is a lot simpler.

A bit of a technicality, but it's GNU IceCat rather than GNU/IceCat (since IceCat is a GNU package, "GNU IceCat" rightly imples that IceCat is from GNU (well, the GNU project). "GNU Linux" would wrongly imply that Linux is from the GNU project (it isn't).

Linux-libre, on the other hand, is a GNU project, so GNU Linux-libre is correct. Parabola, on the other hand, uses "GNU/Linux-libre" to mean that it's the GNU operating system, with Linux-libre as the kernel.

To be fair, it's kind of Trisquel's fault. Abrowser calls it "GNU/IceCat", rather than "GNU IceCat".

I can't access the add-on page in IceCat. In Abrowser it worked fine but in IceCat I just see an explanation of what add-ons are and that I'll be able to see them when I get an internet connection. I tried to intall some add-ons from Firefox add-ons web page, but I would prefer to use IceCat's add-on page since it only contains free software.
