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
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.
