Hi,

There are new versions of Iceweasel and Icedove for Debian 7.2 and Debian Sid. Here are the installation instructions for the new Mozilla software products.

Debian 7.2/Sid:

Put the following line in /etc/apt/sources.list:

Code: Select all

deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian experimental main
Then execute the following commands:

Code: Select all

apt-get update

Code: Select all

apt-get install -t experimental iceweasel

Have a lot of fun with the new Iceweasel and Icedove.

All the best,
Christian

If the pictures have wrong colors, then modify the configuration with about:config. Find the worth image.high_quality_downscaling.enabled and set it to false.

If Iceweasel (Firefox) and Icedove (Thunderbird) have another Font in the menus and dialogue boxes than the desktop environment, then you have to create the file .fonts.conf in the home directory.

Code: Select all

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE fontconfig SYSTEM "fonts.dtd">
<fontconfig>
<match target="font" >
  <edit mode="assign" name="rgba" >
   <const>rgb</const>
  </edit>
</match>
<match target="font" >
  <edit mode="assign" name="hinting" >
   <bool>true</bool>
  </edit>
</match>
<match target="font" >
  <edit mode="assign" name="hintstyle" >
   <const>hintfull</const>
  </edit>
</match>
<match target="font" >
  <edit mode="assign" name="antialias" >
   <bool>true</bool>
  </edit>
</match>
</fontconfig>
If this file exist, then the Firefox use the font configuration from the desktop environment.
