I know that you can't remove it... this is normal, this is because some packages depends of iceweasel for the correct integrated work of Elive, like some elive features, see the result of "apt-cache rdepends iceweasel" and see which ones are elive packages, you then know which features of elive depends of a browser

Now... how much "bad" is this ? first of all let me know... why you want to remove it ? maybe this can be made for elive 3.0...

you want to set firefox by default or other by default ? I dont understand what you want to do exactly with "default"

Mmmh, i dont understand your problem, in xchat click in a link in the right button of the mouse and select "open in a new tab" in the firefox/mozilla sublink

a mi me ha pasado muchas veces y es debido a que se queda zombi el proceso firefox-bin, cuando te vuelva a pasar haces un "killall firefox-bin" y ya veras como te funciona de nuevo.
A no ser que hablemos de abrir una nueva segunda ventana ...

In theory icewease and firefox uses the same engine in addition you will see that they are identical, do not understand why you want to change it if you open a "top" and see that it launches firefox.
