Firefox issues solved with Gnuzilla and IceWeasel

GNU Gnuzilla and IceWeasel
"Gnuzilla is the GNU version of the Mozilla suite, and IceWeasel is the GNU version of the Firefox browser.
Its main advantage is an ethical one: it is entirely free software. While the source code from the Mozilla project is free software,
the binaries that they release include additional non-free software. Also, they distribute non-free software as plug-ins.
(IceWeasel does keep the triple licensing used by Firefox to facilitate the reuse of code.)"

So go download Iceweasel .

Get the 404 error when I go to download.

Since mozilla does not release 64 bit versions that knocks them out for me.

Too bad they don't let Debian package it for them .... oh wait.

Guess I will wait for Iceweasel and make sure that it identifies itself as Iceweasel (or just keep using Konqueror.)

I think this is the best solution in the end. The Mozilla vs Debian spat had the potential to get real ugly. I hope there's no ill feelings between them as a result of this issue.
