Iceweasel 3 (Firefox 3) now in Sid repositories

Iceweasel 3 in now in the Sid/Unstable repos, just a heads up for anyone who would want to know and a potential warning.

2 noticeable oddities Ive found so far is that it seemed to use a week or 2 old bookmark list, as changes Ive made in the past week or so were not there (nothing important but still, just a heads up) and I'm not talking about losing bookmarks only, a bookmark that I created a while ago and then deleted last week was back.

Second, this may simply be a config error on my part, but my mouse side buttons no longer seem to work in it (I had my mouse set so that the 2 side buttons worked to advance pages forward and backward) Maybe the default buttons for that have simply changed and I need to re edit my mouse config or there is a way to change it in Iceweasel itself.

Aside from that it seems perfectly stable though.

Ok did a little bit of searching and found that Firefox 3 in linux changed the default mouse buttons for foward and backward. Its now buttons 8 and 9.

You can edit the setting manually for firefox/iceweasel to change it back though if you really want it back the other way (don't remember exactly how I just changed my button mapping)
