So, you are running the *testing* distribution, you perform an 'apt-get
upgrade', it decides it wants to install *new* packages and you proceed
*blindly* without investigating *why* the new package was being
installed?  I'm sorry, but it seems like you did this to yourself.

Had you bothered to run and 'apt-cache show iceweasel', you would have
seen what was going on.  Had you been running aptitude, which has been
the preferred and better supported package manager for Debian since the
release of Sarge, you would have seen by simply highlighting the
iceweasel package that it was being installed because firefox depended
on it.

I'll say again, you did this to yourself and your initial flame against
everyone was highly uncalled for.
