Lately I have nag messages everywhere I go: "Your browser is too old." It's irritating, but on the other hand I appreciate the scolding.
Is there any way to get automatic updates? Seems like with Iceweasel I can never keep up. I just upgraded to Wheezy and got the backports and I'm still waaay behind.
I'm still getting nag messages everywhere. Google says anything < 2 latest versions is unsupported.
What can I do? Switch browsers?
Is there any way to get "one click" browser upgrades with Debian?
UPDATE: The problem was obmenu wasn't really executing Iceweasel.

well I am kinda oldschool, if I say you can get X from Y then I am absolutely positive that you can get X from Y otherwise I would say something to the effect that I wasn't sure of what I say...
I suspect if you are running #! then it may have a firefox version installed and pinned or it is something you have configured. That is why I think that derivatives should not say they are the same as debian as they have often tweaked/configured things enough to be very different.

Just realized the problem, I had been launching Iceweasel from Openbox instead of the CLI.
Somehow obmenu is launching an older version of Iceweasel (version 13) and I never noticed till now :-/
If I launch "iceweasel" from a terminal I get version 31.
browser too old? Just manually install firefox
