I had thought about grabbing the one from experimental (rc2?), but
against that for a squeeze system.

Because of the radical changes in v4.0, I *strongly* urge that you
install FF 4.0 to /usr/local/bin or ~/bin, since you or your wife
might (as I do) dislike the way that v4 works.

Even using separate profiles for iceweasel 3.5 and Ff 4.0, I accidentally
brought Ff 4.0 in iceweasel's profile once (before making a special menu
item for it) and so Ff 4.0 disabled an addon (a harder to get one)
which I
had to reinstall because I couldn't get it re-enabled in iceweasel.

Didn't Bill Gates convene the "industry" about 10 years ago on the
of upgrade shock, defined as when users, particularly employees,
refuse to
upgrade because they don't want to spend more of their limited time
learning to do the same thing yet again, like when the UI changes?

I missed that. But I wonder if the industry listened...

MSFT sure didn't. But they still use it as a FUD bludgeon against switching away from Windows.
