Ok, I downloaded:
dpkg -i iceweasel_3.5.1-1_amd64.deb

So I must install a trillion dependencies from unstable, to get a normal up-to-date browser under Lenny?

Yes. Running a mixed Lenny/experimental system is a recipe for disaster.

I'd deinstall iceweasel and xulrunner, then install the FF binary directly from mozilla.org.

Same with OOo3 (though I'd look first try www.go-oo.org), if you want the latest version.

Lastly, for the real question: why are you on Lenny? Institution mandate? Narrow pipe? Fear of Testing breakage?
