Wait, Firefox? No more references to Iceweasel? That's right, Debian no

Debian follows the extended support releases (ESR) of Firefox. Support
for the 38.x series has ended, so starting with this update we're now
following the 45.x releases and this update to the next ESR is also the
point where we reapply the original branding.
Transition packages for the iceweasel packages are provided which
automatically upgrade to the new version. Since new binary packages need
to be installed, make sure to allow that in your upgrade procedure (e.g.

For Debian 7 "Wheezy", these problems have been fixed in version
We recommend that you upgrade your firefox-esr packages.
