Well, I struggled with iceweasel 3.0 from Sid for a week but have now
given up. First, printing no longer worked (see earlier posts). I got it
to work, sort of, by using inotifywait and printing the mozilla.ps file
but it wasn't a good solution. Then I found I could no longer listent to
the BBC: attempts to do so caused a crash. This makes it largely useless
so far as I am concerned.
While I have no doubt that you are having problems, neither of those
issues are happening to me. My printer (blandly named "lp") shows
up in the Print dialog box, and have RealPlayer 10.0.9-0.1 installed
from debian-multimedia.org, so that's the format I choose when I
click on a BBC Radio station.
Here are the pages I tested:
After installing realplayer, this does not cause a crash but a hang. I
have to get rid of iceweasel manually with htop+kill sigterm.
So I've installed the version from Testing and propose to stay with that
unless and until these bugs are fixed. I know there are said to be
security issues with older versions of the browser but I shall have to
hope for the best.
