I think your last report was way better then (all) your other reports.
I don't know whether that will give ppl with relevant knowledge enough to go
on, because so far it is unreproducable for others. It's working fine here.

Have you tried creating a new user and can you confirm whether the issue then
still occurs?

This is where it gets really mystifying.

I copied my iceweasel profile (~/.mozilla/firefox/profiles.ini and ~/.mozilla/firefox/vl23iilx.default directory tree) to a new account, and started iceweasel in KDE plasma without issue.

I then went to my original account:

cd .mozilla
ls -al

drwxr-xr-x   7 amarsh04 amarsh04   4096 Jan 15 16:34 .

-rw-------   1 amarsh04 amarsh04   6526 Sep  4  2008 oldpluginreg.dat

I moved everything except the empty fonts directory and firefox directory out the way, then restarted iceweasel under KDE plasma without problems.

I then quit iceweasel, moved the old directories and mozver.dat and oldpluginreg.dat back and was able to start iceweasel under KDE plasma without problems.

Even if iceweasel had completely locked up, should it lock up the rest of the plasma desktop with it?
