I meant using Ice Weasel from GNU, not Debian. Thus, GNU would be
pulling from your side instead.

Just to clarify for some people: There are two different IceWeasels.
The Debian version and the Gnuzilla version are separate projects.

One of the problems with using the Gnuzilla version of IceWeasel is
that it's based on a 1.5 release of Firefox and not a 2.x release.
Since the 1.5 release isn't getting security updates anymore and some
major security holes have been patched between 1.5 and 2.x, using the
Gnuzilla version, IMHO, is just asking for trouble.

By the way, hi, I'm new here! Be expecting to see more of me in the
not-so-distant future.
