Installation of iceweasel?

Hi all.

apt-listbugs still reports 4 grave bugs currently for iceweasel. How to have a working version of iceweasel?

apt-get install iceweasel brings me a stable iceweasel (v30.0-2).  You can always pull the one from experimental (v31.0-b3).  But, have  they fixed the bugs in the new version? 

$ apt-listbugs list iceweasel

I have no more problems with Iceweasel from unstable, then I do using Firefox on openSUSE.  Same version on different distros.  I haven't experienced any of the bugs listed above.
