	Ok, so.  Icecat is successfully installed!  Thank you everyone who helped.   
I truly haven’t encountered such a helpful Linux community before, not to  
diss anyone, but you guys have been much more helpful.
	Following your advice I:
~$ sudo apt-get install xul-ext-torproxy tor
[sudo] password for localhost5:
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Package xul-ext-torproxy is not available, but is referred to by another  
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source

E: Package 'xul-ext-torproxy' has no installation candidate

Ok so I downloaded it like Legimet said, and:

~$ sudo dpkg -i  
Selecting previously unselected package xul-ext-torproxy.

Ok, so...

sudo synaptic

“You have one broken package.  Please...blablabla”

So I fixed that, then used synaptic to install it, and that worked.

I then downloaded, and tried installing the Icecat packages with sudo dpkg -i  
(starting with icecat_31.0+gnu3_amd64.deb) again.

(Reading database ... 243492 files and directories currently installed.)

	Then software center opened, (this sometimes happens when I install debs)  
and displayed the message below.  So I let it run it’s fix, then looked for  
Icecat in software center, and found it, so I ran the install.  Well that did  
it.  “shrugs”
	Anyway I couldn’t have done it without your help.  Thank you so much.
