Stable/Testing Debian and Mozilla Products

I depend on a current Firefox version for… well basically living.

Debian ‘testing’ ships with an iceweasel version 17 (== Firefox 17) which is old.
I mean ‘hieroglyphs in ancient egypt depicted Horus using Firefox 17’ old (in web terms).

The usual nerd-knee-jerk reaction is to just bump verything to unstable and be done with it.
(I know, you could also just pick ice[weasel|dove] from there but… meh)

But… sometimes it doesn’t seem the wisesest to do so and, looking for alternatives, I stumbled upon:
http://mozilla.debian.net/

A repository with Mozilla software under the debian umbrella with current(-ish) versions even for oldstable.

Day saved. asmw happy.
