I run testing/wheezy and upgraded to iceweasel 6.0.2 this weekend,
closing my running copy of iceweasel first. When I tried to load it
again, it got as far as loading all the windows and showing all of the
tabs, but before the pages had finished loading it crashed. Upon
reopening iceweasel, I was presented with the "Restore session" page and
could browse normally by opening new tabs, but when I told it to restore
my existing session, it crashed again at the same point. I tried
mode, but nothing worked.
Eventually I tried loading iceweasel from the command line and found
this message printed there:
/usr/lib/iceweasel/firefox-bin: symbol lookup error:
/usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/gecko-mediaplayer-dvx.so: undefined symbol:
By doing a web search for this, I found that users of another distro had
encountered the same problem:
The suggested work around was to uninstall the package gecko-mediaplayer
and I did this, which fixed the problem. (When I went to re-enable some
of my settings, though, I experienced another crash which turned out to
be Debian bug 626076 but the work around in comment #5 worked:
and now I am using the browser normally).
I'm guessing that the iceweasel package should at least be marked as
conflicting with the gecko-mediaplayer package, unless this can be
resolved some other way.
