Swiftfox is not maintained in Debian, and not compatible with existing Iceweasel or Firefox profiles. It is also not supported in Aptosid for the very same reason. If you really think you "need" it, use it inside a chroot or a virtual machine, which avoids interferences with Iceweasel and other Mozilla products.

I am not aware of any addons not working with Iceweasel, actually I cannot imagine any technical reasons for such problems. Swiftfox after all is nothing else than a simple Firefox re-build with some minor optimizations for newer hardware and re-branding.

Greetings,
Chris

Start to use your brain!
Iceweasel 4.0beta is not in debian.
Iceweasel from the debian Repos works, so the addons are working even.

The meaning of your post could be the same without the "Start to use your brain!" statment.

No, because it's stupid to cry about disfunctional plugins in a not supportet iceweasel-version. The plugins are working perfect in iceweasel 3.5.x, which is the version in the repos.

I do not like to continue this, so this is my last post about this subject.

ankscorek has 14 posts here. He may be used from other forums where such "stupid" questions are absolutely valid.

There are more than one ways to do something and there are more than two ways to say something. One way is better and yours was not Smile

There are different ways to express yourself, there are different ways to tell people that they are obviously wrong, and there are different ways to deal with personal critics. Our forums is is not the place to tell others "to use their brain", and also not the place to educate those who did say so. I am closing this topic because the initial question is answered.
Greetings,
Chris
