Because some people from FF decided to get picky and change the licence agreement along with throwing a fit over FF being maintained by others beyond their release cycle. While I can see some of their stance it is a bit of a snub to the Free software/Opensource community since they don't maintain patches for older releases of their software (ie. you need to upgrade to the next release instead). All corrections from knowledgible folks accepted. This is just my understanding of things.
What is iceweasel?
Iceweasel is a fork [from Firefox] with the following purpose :
1) backporting of security fixes to declared Debian stable version.
2) no inclusion of trademarked Mozilla artwork (because of #1 above)
Beyond that, they will be basically identical. (quoting Roberto C. Sanchez post in debian-devel mailing list)
Also note that iceweasel is NOT Iceweasel from http://www.gnu.org/software/gnuzilla/.
