That worked! If you were thinking it was my profile, you were right.
I deleted the ~/.mozilla folder for the original user and was able to
succefully start iceweasel. I think the initial profile creation may
have been interrupted.
Before that, I had tried running "mozilla" to no avail, and top wasn't
showing any xul-runner instances. I appreciate the suggestions.
It just so happened that I got this "iceweasel does nothing" thing a
couple of days ago with 2 or my users. It turned out to be permissions:
iceweasel does nothing if the permissions are not right in the home dir.
You can set them right with:
chown -hR <userid>:<usergroup> /home/<user dir>/
