GNU Drama: Can’t install Firebug on GNU IceCat 17

The latest in the series of problems trying to be “green” using only GNU-approved software is this. For some reason, addons.mozilla.org detects my IceCat browser as Firefox version 6 (it’s actually GNU IceCat 17; I would think the versions are roughly equivalent).

Clicking the grey “Add to Firefox” button gave me an option to “install the add-on anyway”, which I did. Firebug was then downloaded, but could not be installed because it was not compatible with the browser.
