Forgive me if I'm wrong, but Iceweasel is nothing more than a rebranded 
Firefox, and its first release was version 2 of FF.  So, I don't know how 
that would help him.  

However, there is little worry about it anyway, as 2.0.x has been out for some 
time, and should be good to go. Unless there are specific browserbased 
applications that require it, I wouldn't see a reason for not upgrading.
