I had written up a long message, comparing Iceweasel to Epiphany,
which worked all the time, and as I was comparing the configuration
keys character by character, I found it.

It turns out that there has been a microscopic change in the
interpretation of the 


key between Iceweasel 2.x and 3.x. In my version 2.0 config I had set

   network.negotiate-auth.trusted-uris   https:

but it turns out that that is not sufficient to trigger the Kerberos
behaviour in Iceweasel 3.0, but when I changed it to

   network.negotiate-auth.trusted-uris   https://

(note the trailing double-slash) it just started working again.

So, I'm a happy camper. Sorry for bothering you with this, but it
confused the h-ll out of me. :-)

And, BTW, it is not necessary to set the


key to any value. The "trusted-uris" is sufficient - at least in my
case. :-)
