I was just able to check Hugos question by forcing nvidia-glx to install and
creating a .xinitrc file that started iceweasel right after gnome (I still
couldn't use mouse or keyboard in X). This way I was able to see that iceweasel
does *not* scale smoothly using xorg 7.4 from experimental. At least it doesn't
do it automagically with my current xorg.conf.
If anyone has further info on iceweasel smooth image scaling I'd be very
grateful to hear it!
