I think we've been through the whole iceweasel == || != firefox issue
before. I understand the reasoning behind the name change, and I
understand both sides of the issue. What I don't understand is why it
has to have such a large impact on us, the users.
After all the problems I have been having with IceWeasel, I have started
using Konqeror more and more. Unfortunately, some web sites don't work
so well with it. Then again, some don't work for anything but IE.
I just saw that Mozilla just released 188.8.131.52 for a security patch. I
wonder how long before we'll get Iceweasel 184.108.40.206?
Hopefully the transition is complete enough that we won't run into
things like losing our profiles or having 2 tabs open when we click on
something. These issues are fixed in iceweasel_220.127.116.11+dfsg-3; I'm
curious as to what iceweasel_18.104.22.168+dfsg-1 will bring us.
