ICEWEASEL(1)                  Linux User's Manual                 ICEWEASEL(1)



NAME
       iceweasel - a Web browser for X11 derived from the Mozilla browser


SYNOPSIS
       iceweasel [OPTIONS] [URL]

       /usr/lib/iceweasel/firefox-bin [OPTIONS] [URL]


DESCRIPTION
       Iceweasel is an open-source web browser, designed for standards compli-
       ance, performance and portability.


USAGE
       iceweasel is a simple shell script that will set up the environment for
       the  actual  executable,  firefox-bin.  If there is a Iceweasel browser
       already running, iceweasel will arrange for it to create a new  browser
       window; otherwise it will start the Iceweasel application.


OPTIONS
       A summary of the options supported by iceweasel is included below.

              Gtk+ debugging flags to set

   Mozilla options
       -height value
              Set height of startup window to value pixels.

       -h, -help
              Show summary of options.

       -installer
              Start with Mozilla 4.x migration window.

       -width value
              Set width of startup window to value pixels.

       -v, -version
              Print Iceweasel version.

       -no-remote
              Don't connect to a running iceweasel instance.

       -a application-id
              Check  for a running Iceweasel started with the specified appli-
              cation-id.  When iceweasel is invoked for the first time with  a
              particular   application-id,  a  new  Iceweasel  application  is
              started; subsequent  invocations  of  iceweasel  with  the  same
              application-id will cause the already-running Iceweasel to bring
              up a new window.

              The default is -a iceweasel.

       -CreateProfile profile
              Create profile.  Implies -a iceweasel--profile, or -a default if
              profile is default.

       -P profile
              Start  with  profile.   Implies  -a  iceweasel--profile,  or  -a
              default if profile is default.

       -ProfileManager
              Start with profile manager.  Implies  -a  with  a  fresh  unique
              application-id.

       -UILocale locale
              Start  with  locale  resources  as  User  Interface  locale.  By
              default, it is guessed from environment  and  available  locales
              for Iceweasel.

       -contentLocale locale
              Start with locale resources as content locale. By default, it is
              guessed from environment and available locales for Iceweasel.

       -new-window URL
              Open URL in  a  new  window  in  an  already  running  Iceweasel
              process.   -new-tab URL Open URL in a new tab in an already run-
              ning Iceweasel process.


       -jsconsole
              Start with Javascript Console

       -chrome url
              Load the specified chrome.

              and showing a bit more debugging messages.
