iceweasel broken after update


I am using squeeze on kernel 2.6.30-2-686 on a dell precision laptop

After running  aptitude safe-upgrade  yesterday, and accepting all of
the suggestions,
iceweasel appears broken today.

When I start it I get a screen with the message

“Well, this is embarrassing.
Iceweasel is having trouble recovering your windows and tabs. This is
usually caused by a recently opened web page.
You can try:
Removing one or more tabs that you think may be causing the problem
Starting an entirely new browsing session”

On opening a new session, when I browse to a new page, other than the
home page, iceweasel dies.

Should I just do the following?

aptitude remove iceweasel
aptitude install iceweasel

The following is the output of
# aptitude show iceweasel

Description: lightweight web browser based on Mozilla

 Iceweasel is a redesign of the Mozilla browser component, similar to Galeon,

 K-Meleon and Camino, but written using the XUL user interface language and

 designed to be lightweight and cross-platform.

 This browser is based on the Firefox source-code, with minor modifications.

 Historically, this browser was previously known as Firebird and Phoenix.
