Restarting IceCat with -safe-mode and disabling all the extensions didn't give this results. I re enabled all the extensions one by one and discovered that the problem was actually `Priv3', which is installed by default with IceCat.

Good to know, thanks for posting about this. I'm working on a brand new
extension for Privacy. After it's added to IceCat, you will not need
Priv3 anymore and Priv3 won't ship with IceCat anymore. This is
scheduled for roughly in 2 weeks with IceCat 14.
