Well my internet connection is working.. I just don't know how to set this one up..!

Besides that, is there a good reason to why Iceweasel is better to be used than firefox?

Thanks a lot!

well tell us what the connection is and we might be able to help... ideally it'll be an ethernet connection and so just plug it in and go.

iceweasel is only relevant to daft debian users, best to pretend it doesn't exist imho...

Have you tried opening your Zenpanel and running Network settings from in there?

First of all iceweasel is firefox. It's just using a different name and license.

The main reason for switching to iceweasel is that by using firefox you're not allowed to build the browser with any extra options you might want or change the default theme or do any customisation for the package. If you have to change anything, according to the firefox license, you are not allowed to call it firefox anymore. So that's how the name iceweasel came about.

You can easily replace iceweasel with firefox if you want to (I did). Just remove iceweasel, then download firefox, untar it, and copy the firefox directory to /usr/lib/. Then cd into /usr/bin/ and run:

ln -s /usr/lib/firefox/firefox firefox

so the launcher on the bottom panel still works. Backup your /usr/lib/iceweasel/plugins/ first in case you need to replace any of them (like flash). For java, just cd into /usr/lib/firefox/plugins/ and run:

ln -s /usr/lib/jre<VERSION>/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so /usr/lib/firefox<VERSION>/plugins

It will be up to you to manually update firefox from then on.
