Iceweasel is unable to treat Google Mail adequately.
This is something that can be reported, should the error is consistent
and fully reproducible.
AFAIK this is already known, and the problem is not the small difference
between Iceweasel and Firefox, but rather that Google (and several other
sites) have dropped support for Firefox 3.5 which is the base for
Iceweasel in Squeeze.
I have the impression, which may indeed be erroneous, that Google has
deliberately obsoleted Iceweasel in order to push its users into Chrome or
chromium. Though I imagine that it will still play ball with IE.
This happened when they "updated"/"improved" Gmail.
I also have that impression.
Forunately, it still works just fine with imap via mutt and also
in elinks and in Opera as well, for those occasions one must access
gmails settings dialog. Best of all, elinks and Opera don't
require updating every four minutes to avoid being pwned.
An important factor for those of us with extremely limited bandwidth....
