    stopped before the end of the regular security maintenance life cycle. 
    
    You are strongly encouraged to upgrade to stable or switch to a still
    supported browser.
    
    On a side note, please note that the Debian stable/Lenny version of
    Iceweasel - the unbranded version of the Firefox browser - links 
    dynamically against the Xulrunner library. As such, most of the
    vulnerabilities found in Firefox need only be fixed in the Xulrunner
    package and don't require updates to the Iceweasel package any longer.
