Description

The 'Licensing Information' and 'End-User Rights' in 'About IceCat' uses the terms
[1] open source.
[2] free and open source software. (Expanded for 'FOSS'.)

As per GNU FSDG

[1] "Please avoid using the term “open” or “open source” as a substitute for “free software.” Those terms refer to a different position based on different values. .."

[2] "The term “FOSS,” meaning “Free and Open Source Software,” was coined as a way to be neutral between free software and open source, but it doesn't really do that. If neutrality is your goal, “FLOSS” is better. But if you want to show you stand for freedom, don't use a neutral term."

In addition the about:license has a link to Open Source Initiative site.

[UPDATE]: It seems Abrowser too has *SAME* issues with Licensing Information and End-User Rights.
(Atleast for Abrowser 34.0 trisquel-7.0)

Please confirm.

I did searched on the same pages concerning to the same issues on Abrowser 35.0.1 (Trisquel 7.0), an they display exactly the same stuff as shown on those screen captures.
