32 bit iceweasel/firefox on Debian Etch AMD64


Seen a lot of things about running flash and Java on AMD64 platform
i chose to install a 32-bits browser and it works like a charm

1) go to packages.debian.org and look for
ia32-libs_2.5_amd64.deb
ia32-libs-gtk_2.5_amd64.deb

as they are not in the stable release

download and install with dpkg

2) Choose your 32-bit browser *typically firefox or iceweasel*
I got iceweasel_2.0.0.14-0etch1_i386.deb

3) install with dpkg

4) launch the browser and type in the address bar: 'about:config'

5) search for 'IPV6'

6) rigth click -> toggle

7) add your 32 bits plugins amd enjoy
