=== Iceweasel is consistently crashing on a website ===
 * First run Iceweasel without loading any extensions or plugins and see if the problem persists. This can be done by using the -safe-mode option
{{{
    MOZILLA_DISABLE_PLUGINS=1 iceweasel -safe-mode
}}}
 * If the problem goes away, then it means that one of the installed extensions is the root cause of the problem. If not then read on!
 * Create a new user and try to reproduce the problem on the new user's account.
 * If there is no problem with Iceweasel on new user's account, chances are that your ~/.mozilla/firefox/ directory is corrupt.
 * In order to see if the ~/.mozilla/firefox/ is infact corrupt or not, move it to some other directory and start Iceweasel again
{{{
    mv ~/.mozilla/firefox/ ~/old_firefox
    iceweasel &
}}}
 * If the problem goes away, well and good. Otherwise you can ask for help on debian-user mailing list by providing all the relevant information like "the way to reproduce the crash", "the version of Iceweasel you are using", and "the distribution you are using" etc., Finally, if you are confident that it is a bug in the Iceweasel package please consider filing a bug against the Iceweasel package.

=== Unsupported Browser Error ===
 *In order to browse websites like mlsni.net which allows Firefox but not Iceweasel, you'll need to change the user agent string of your browser. Look at the section "User Agent String" on how to change the user agent string.

=== No H.264 support in youtube ===
 *In order to watch 720p videos in youtube using HTML5, Gstreamer libav and Gstreamer plugins from the good set must be installed. To install execute the following command.
{{{
apt-get install gstreamer1.0-libav gstreamer1.0-plugins-good
}}}
 *Make sure about:config settings have ''media.peerconnection.video.h264_enabled'' set to true
 *After installing these codecs the HTML5 player must be requested on the [[https://www.youtube.com/html5|youtube HTML5 website.]]
