Re: flashblock and noscript extensions want root access?

I am not sure I want to do this as root. Usually, I tend to keep

going to wait it out and see if newer versions of Iceape allow this.
H.S., if you do install Noscript into Iceape (as root), please let us
know how this affects your upgrades. My guess is that Noscript would
have to be reinstalled after every upgrade of Iceape, but I'd like to
It should be enough to give your normal user temporary write access to
/usr/share/iceape/ whenever you want to install or update an extension.
If I do this and some files are then installed here, would those files
and their containing directories be deleted if I purge the iceape package?
I ask because sometimes when doing a remove or purge operation, dpkg
reports that a certain directory was not empty so is not being removed.
Usually this happens in while removing kernels when perhaps a custom
module left a file somewhere which was not in the original Debian package.
BTW, just discovered this (based on Ron's post):
$> apt-cache search extension iceape
iceape-dom-inspector - DOM inspector for the Iceape Internet Suite
iceape-gnome-support - GNOME support for the Iceape Internet Suite
iceape-traybiff - traybiff - new mail alert for Icedove
mozilla-biofox - extension of bioinformatics tools to Iceape and
mozilla-firefox-adblock - AdBlock extension for the Iceweasel and Iceape
mozilla-livehttpheaders - Adds information about the HTTP headers to
Iceweasel and Iceape
mozilla-tabextensions - Tabbed browsing extensions for Iceape
mozilla-traybiff-common - traybiff - new mail alert for Icedove
I have installed these now:
$> sudo aptitude install mozilla-firefox-adblock mozilla-noscript
This is on Debian Testing.
