Fedora Update Notification
2018-01-17 22:33:45.476936

Name : icecat
Product : Fedora 27
Version : 52.5.3
Release : 2.fc27
URL : http://www.gnu.org/software/gnuzilla/
Summary : GNU version of Firefox browser
Description :
GNUZilla Icecat is a fully-free fork of Mozilla Firefox ESR.
Extensions included to this version of IceCat:

* LibreJS
GNU LibreJS aims to address the JavaScript problem described in Richard
Stallman's article The JavaScript Trap.

* SpyBlock
Blocks privacy trackers while in normal browsing mode, and all third party
requests when in private browsing mode. Based on Adblock Plus.

* AboutIceCat
Adds a custom "about:icecat" homepage with links to information
about the
free software and privacy features in IceCat, and check-boxes to enable
and disable the ones more prone to break websites.

* HTML5-video-everywhere
Uses the native video player to play embedded videos from different sources

* Fingerprinting countermeasures: Fingerprinting is a series of techniques
allowing to uniquely identify a browser based on specific characteristics of
that particular instance (like what fonts are available in that machine).
Unlike cookies the user cannot opt-out of being tracked this way,
so the browser has to avoid giving away that kind of hints.

Update Information:

- Update to 52.5.3 - Patched for mozilla bug-1427870 (spectre mitigation)

This update can be installed with the "dnf" update program. Use
su -c 'dnf upgrade icecat' at the command line.
