I don't know if this is the right place, but: I've installed GNU Icecat, but whenever I try to log in to Facebook it tells me I have to enable cookies. I have enabled cookies (and third party cookies) in Icecat preferences. Do you have a suggestion?

  • How did you install icecat?

Ice Cat has an extension called LibreJS that doesn't allows proprietary javascript. Because of this you can't use facebook as it requires javascript to run. There are three solutions:

  1. Use a different browser that does allow javascript
  2. Whitelist facebook on LibreJS you probably will find it next to menu button

    enter image description here

  3. Use a mobile friendly version of facebook. Like https://m.facebook.com/ you can use it from a pc don't need to be on a smartphone or tablet

  • You're right, the problem is with LibreJS. However, even after whitelisting facebook, it doesn't load properly, and the only way I've got it to load is to disable the plugin.
