kytv, may you please have a look? Assuming it worked back when anonym merged your work for 1.2, I guess it was caused by one of last changes for the migration to TBB / FF31.

anonym, I guess the explanation on Bug #8158 applies here too. There’s a patch there.

Here’s a fix for the I2P browser problem, which has the same cause as Bug #8158.

Updated patch, confirmed working on my computer. The patch is identical to the final one for Bug #8158 except for referencing i2p-browser instead of unsafe-browser.

The patch needed some love. Please review’n’merge!

(BTW, my test in Bug #8158–13 also verified that the I2P Browser works after incremental upgrades.)
