Do you have an '/etc/apt/preferences' file ? I had mine setup, and it was
preventing the upgrade to iceweasel 4. I temporarily renamed it, and I am able to
upgrade, now I don't want to. I am using Minefield as my personal multimedia
browser, iceweasel stable for work.
I need to understand ore about pinning :-)
