IceCat hangs when entering web pages such as instructables.com. Isupposed it was because it has a lot of Javascript. Nevertheless, theproblem occurs even when these plugins are activated:DisconnectGNU LibreJSSpyBlockuBlock Origin

Isn't SpyBlock an addon which does what uBlock Origin does?It's a bit difficult to help with "it hangs" issue descriptions,can you be more specific?it could even be an upstream issue.
For now we should wait until the new version is available onGuix and then you could try and see if your issue has beenfixed?-- PGP and more: https://people.pragmatique.xyz/ng0/

There's a workaround for Icecat hangs. You have to set the skia rendering
Something like
gfx.canvas.azure.backends = skiagfx.content.azure.backends = skia

This has been discussed in the past, see herehttps://lists.nongnu.org/archive/html/guix-devel/2017-02/msg00972.html
There are more mentions of skia, just search the mailing list archive

Thank you very much. Those are the exact symptoms.

I cannot reproduce the hang (perhaps you meant crash?). I'm using theskia backend as others have explained. It stopped the frequent andrandom IceCat crashes at the cost of crude text rendering.
I hope we can solve the problem with the cairo backend at some point!

Thank you very very much all of you for your help.
I meant crash. I think the problem is solved. I am not sure. Theproblem was not always. I will report.
I wonder why those parameters are not set by default to skia while theproblem with cairo is fixed.

Actually, such a change was committed 3 weeks ago by Mark H Weaver.
2abf6371cc gnu: icecat: Add fixes from mozilla-esr45; use skia bydefault.
But it might be that it will only take effect in new IceCat profiles(i.e. if you have used IceCat before the fix, the cairo values might becached somewhere?).
Anyway, I'm glad you got it working better!
