To be fair, it's not exactly true, because upgrading from firefox to
iceweasel in debian means upgrading from version 1.0 or 1.5 to 2.0, and
there are substancial changes that some people dislike, myself included.

Which means Piotr is actually probably complaining about the fact that
iceweasel is not quite the same as firefox used to be on his desktop,
but on the other hand, if it were still named firefox, he would have the
same opinion.
