librsvg-stable provides librsvg.

Be sure to answer y (yes) to the question
:: librsvg-stable and librsvg are in conflict. Remove librsvg? [y/N] y

Making iceweasel dependant on librsvg is making things... complicated... to say the least.

And if I try to remove librsvg and replace it with librsvg-stable 3/4 of my system wants to go with it...

I think this needs to be re-thought...

Cheers.

@Emulatorman
Thanks for your suggestion (and thanks to your team).
I'll upload librsvg-stable on AUR.

@supelex
We (Parabola hackers) are using librsvg-stable [0] to build iceweasel and packages that needs be built against it until librsvg be fixed. Also i put librsvg to provides array to avoid conflicts with another packages. You could consider it as temporary fix.

@seva
There is a bug in librsvg:
https://bugs.archlinux.org/index.php?do=details&task_id=48599
Wait for fix.

Yes, I agree.
I think the best idea is to follow parabola team for now, in order to maintain iceweasel branding and the same version of firefox.
In the future we could create a different package on AUR, e.g. called debian-firefox.

I'm not sure, for what you guys use Iceweasel. My use case is to have a separate browser at my office computer for my private profile.

Iceweasel = private Firefox profile
Firefox = work Firefox profile

So, as long as I can start both browsers without problems, I'm happy with any solution. Besides … I would vote against ESR, because this means an aging browser over time. ;)

superlex commented on 2016-03-15 16:56

So guys, iceweasel will be deprecated in favour of firefox.
Firefox just arrived in Sid with version 45.0 and it will become default browser from next stable release of Debian, Stretch.
We could switch to iceweasel esr for now, adopt firefox with debian patches or adopt parabola gnu/linux iceweasel, with or without libre patches.

Let me konw what do you prefer.

I second prazola "Iceweasel icon is not scaled properly. I can se only a corner of the image in my launchers. ". I'm having the same issue right now.
