Is there a conspiracy to prevent me from working on Iceweasel 3.6 ?

After realizing Iceweasel wasn’t working properly on various Debian architectures, and spending time fixing that, this week a new cairo version triggered a longstanding bug which would kill Iceweasel when closing a tab. I think I got it fixed now, but what next ?

    Well after my last dist-upgrade (just couple of minutes ago) libcairo2 got updated, but I lost iceweasel and I cannot install it anymore … :/ Debian Sid ..

    Unwillingly had to switch to Chrome >_< Also I see Ubuntu Lucid has 3.6 in it, maybe try looking at what they did to get it there?

    Your obvious solution is to not upgrade libcairo2, and wait for xulrunner-1.9.1 1.9.1.8-4, which is on its way to mirrors.

    As an upstream Mozilla developer and Debian user, is there anything I can do to make your life easier? (I cannot prosecute major policy changes in upstream, e.g. not shipping so damn many third party libraries, much as I might like to.)
