    New to Debian and do not understand this:

    I am running Debian Squeeze AMD64 and noticed that Iceweasel is currently at 3.5.8

    Are we vulnerable and should be upgrading to 3.6.3?

    However, apt-get/aptitude update does not returns anything new updates?

  2. plugh Says:

    Thank you for keeping us updated! :)

    Would it perhaps be feasible to have the experimental branch on as well, by the way?

  3. Stefan Says:

    Thanks for giving us those testing packages

    It looks like the latest version of the iceweasel-package (compared to preview1) dropped the symlinks for mozilla-firefox and firefox from /usr/bin. Is that change intentional?

  4. Josh Triplett Says:

    @Stefan: Looks like it; the changelog explicitly says “Remove firefox and mozilla-firefox links.”

    I noticed this quickly myself, since I normally launch the browser via a metacity hotkey that invokes “firefox”, which works portably across distributions.

    Already reported as bug 576392. :)

    @Josh: Thanks. I had missed that as i was only looking at the >=3.6 changelog entries, now found this packaging change in 3.5.9-1

    Trying to install it, I type (as root): gdebi iceweasel_…

    but gdebi crashes and gives me some depracation warnings and that:

    Traceback (most recent call last): File “/usr/bin/gdebi”, line 83, in if not[0]): File “/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/GDebi/”, line 86, in open if not self._deb.checkDeb(): File “/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/GDebi/”, line 368, in checkDeb if not self.checkBreaksExistingPackages(): File “/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/GDebi/”, line 283, in checkBreaksExistingPackages ‘depversion’ : dep.version} TypeError: not enough arguments for format string

    never had that. Any ideas? I am using debian/squeeze-amd64.

  7. giri Says:

    what about dpkg -i *.deb as root?

    Don’t forget to have all 3 files: iceweasel_3.6.3-1_amd64.deb xulrunner-1.9.2_1.9.2.3-2_amd64.deb libmozjs3d_1.9.2.3-2_amd64.deb

    “dpkg -i” worked, thank you! I always used gdebi.
