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.
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.
Since IW 3.0 became available in the Lenny/testing repositories
yesterday, I have been running it with reasonable success. There are
times when it seems a little slower and a number of my favourite
add-ons/extensions have yet to be upgraded for compatibility, but so far
so good. I have also been able to print using CUPS.
The Flashplayer function does seem to have problems though on a number
of sites, but I have yet to discern a definite pattern.
