      + Remove the iceweasel symlink.

could you please elaborate why I might want to remove iceweasel symlink?
it is not needed any longer or Debian reverted back to firefox
copyright-unclean naming scheme?

wow -- should I really update maintainer field within debian package?
what would be an appropriate substitution? :-)

You are right. Debian uses Iceweasel, so it's useless to remove 
iceweasel symlink.

Sorry for this bug report.
