How to install Google Gears on Iceweasel.

Everybody knows Iceweasel is actually Firefox 3, everyboby except Google. When you visit, an ugly message says “your browser is not supported”.

The solution is easy: trivial user agent cheating :-)

  1. Point your iceweasel to “about:config”.
  2. Find a key called “general.useragent.extra.firefox” and edit to “Firefox/3.0.5”
  3. Then, visit again and install.

Remember activate the add-on and set the permissions to the gears web applications.
