Dear all, 

it seems there is a serious problem with iceweasel crashing on
https sites even from Debian, like mentors.debian.org
(interestingly *not* https://www.debian.org/)

I have contacted the Debian Mentors Team, and Paul Wise
advised me to contact both security and icewease packaging team.

I have reproduced this with iceweasel --safe-mode, it crashes
(segfaults) repeatetly when accessing any 
I guess this must be a but in Iceweasel, but follow the advise
of Paul to contact security, too.
