Debian - Install Google Browsersync into Iceweasel

When trying to install the Google Browsersync add-on:
http://www.google.com/tools/firefox/browsersync/

They check to see if you are running Firefox 1.5 or greater. If you are running Iceweasel, it will complain and send you to the Mozilla site to download Firefox. Instead of worrying about that, you can download it directly from:
http://toolbar.google.com/firefox/extensions/toolbar/google-browsersync.xpi

I got this fix from:

GAIM - renamed to Pidgin

Imagine my interest when I upgraded from Debian Etch to Unstable, and couldn't find my GAIM client... Luckily, I noticed Pidgin Internet Messenger under Applications->Internet, _and_ it fired up with all of my GAIM profiles :) Intrigued, I did a little research, and found that AOL had forced GAIM to rename itself. The developers chose Pidgin, (Finch for the console version):
