Security update for Iceweasel 3.6 preview

While the package is not ready yet for experimental, mostly because there are pending changes in the 3.5 branch, Mozilla released a security update today. So, here are the packages you need to be safe security-wise with Iceweasel 3.6. Please note only xulrunner packages have been updated, as the security fix lies in the xulrunner code.

A known regression of this version is that the icons in the search box on the top right don’t show up. Update: This regression actually doesn’t exist.

    Thanks for putting this out so quickly. Search icons are fine here (the throbber icon is still static, not that it really matters).

    Random unusual item, dunno if it should become a bug report or not:

    Iceweasel 3.5.8 from latest unstable fails 6 tests on that Firefox 3.5 (all of 3.5 through 3.5.8) passes.

    Anonymous: Try without extensions, because I get the same results as Firefox 3.5, there.

    Thanks for the fast updates! It will be great if you can post it to experimental as well.

    Cheers, Gal

    Anonymous: that should be ##SO_VERSION## but well spotted. Thanks.

    glandium: Sure enough, the “It’s All Text” addon caused the failures.

    I also noticed the static static throbber icon over the tab while loading a web page. Can you confirm this?
