GNUZilla Icecat is a fully-free fork of Mozilla Firefox ESR.
Extensions included to this version of IceCat:

 * LibreJS
   GNU LibreJS aims to address the JavaScript problem described in Richard
   Stallman's article The JavaScript Trap.

 * SpyBlock
   Blocks privacy trackers while in normal browsing mode, and all third party
   requests when in private browsing mode. Based on Adblock Plus.

 * AboutIceCat
   Adds a custom "about:icecat" homepage with links to information about the
   free software and privacy features in IceCat, and check-boxes to enable
   and disable the ones more prone to break websites.

 * HTML5-video-everywhere
   Uses the native video player to play embedded videos from different sources

 * Fingerprinting countermeasures: Fingerprinting is a series of techniques
   allowing to uniquely identify a browser based on specific characteristics of
   that particular instance (like what fonts are available in that machine).
   Unlike cookies the user cannot opt-out of being tracked this way,
   so the browser has to avoid giving away that kind of hints.
