Iceweasel is Firefox, just repackaged for Debian.

Because part of Firefox's license states that if you fork Firefox, you can no longer call it that. Debian's stable releases have old versions of Firefox in them, but to keep them secure, security fixes are backported. Since the resultant binary is technically not Firefox, it can't be called that.

It's just a licensing issue with the name

Yeah, I know, but I'm hoping they'll diverge if Mozilla insists on pushing this bullshit.
