On logging into gmail yesterday morning on iceweasel I got the following message - "You are using an old version of Firefox that Gmail no longer supports. Some features may not work correctly" - are there any plans for upgrading iceweasel to get round this problem, or should I install a more updated firefox?

Thats what I sent to the #debian chatroom on irc, and I got various replies like "don't worry, just ignore it" and one directing me to http://mozilla.debian.net

When I went there it was a page showing how to get backports for debian squeeze [debian 6.0.2] and I ended up installing a beta version of iceweasel, which is working very well.

It wasn't a real showstopper, more of an irritation than anything, but Debian had a solution before I had the problem. :)
