iceweasel update issue


today i updated my debian machine from etch to sid.
but Iceweasel is acting weird now.

the update installed Iceweasel 2.0.0.2.
but the homepage is not correct when starting iceweasel.
It always displays this website when I start iceweasel: http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/ instead of the homepage, but when I click the homepage button, the homepage is loaded correctly.

Can I do something about it, so that the homepage gets actually loaded as it should when Iceweasel is loaded?

Iceweasel ignores user set homepage and loads Mozilla - LinuxQuestions.org

ok I'm just going to revert to iceweasel 2.0.0.1 and wait till 2.0.0.3 comes out.

apt-get remove --purge iceweasel
dpkg -i iceweasel_2.0.0.1+dfsg-4_i386.deb (download it if you don't still have it)
echo iceweasel hold | dpkg --set-selections

Seems like the mozilla folks are playing a silly game...
As a product that's mostly being developed by 'the community', they shouldn't be fooling around with 'the community'.
They're not making theirselves popular like this imo.
