I've been using GNU Icecat Browser (libre Firefox version made by Gnuzilla) for some weeks. I've been diving through its menus and I found an error:

When I get into the 'Customize Mode' (the one that lets you organize your toolbars and stuff), I find a little drop-down menu saying 'Themes', and an option called 'Get More Themes' inside it.

If I click it, it will redirect me [here][1], which will return an error. I want to modify the line of code of that redirection, in order to fix that URL, but I can't find it with grep -Rli /icecat/addons/ /usr/share/. Maybe am I searching in the wrong folder? Maybe the command is wrong?...

Icecat - https://www.gnu.org/software/gnuzilla/

Code - http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/gnuzilla/

Scripts - http://git.savannah.gnu.org/cgit/gnuzilla.git

Firefox - https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Developer_guide/Source_Code/Downloading_Source_Archives

source - https://archive.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/45.0b9/source/

  • ls /home/username/Downloads firefox-45.0b7 gnuzilla-38.3.0 firefox-45.0b9 username@computer:~$ sudo grep -Rlis '/icecat/themes' '/home/username/Downloads' username@computer:~$ Seems not to find anything, even having downloaded all the packages. This is strange, as I have Icecat properly installed (came by default), and I can't find this specific line. I also don't know were is my Icecat installed source code folder(s).

  • Ah, just for showing the content of the folder where I downloaded all the packages. Just to let you know the folders I was grepping. Initially, I grepped in /usr/share because I thought there was were my Icecat default source code was, but there seems to be only a part. Sincerely, I'm completely lost: I have never tried to modify a big program, and I'm still getting used to all the folders and stuff in GNU/Linux distros.
