So you knew iceweasel would be replacing firefox, had every reason to 
expect it, and are upset because what happened was what you knew would 
happen?

Honestly, it sounds like you were warned, you knew what to expect, and 
are still upset because, even after being warned, you didn't expect it.  
It sounds like the guy who is told, "If you get that model car, it only 
comes with an automatic shift," you order it, hoping for a stick, get 
the automatic, then are upset because you're getting what you were told 
you'd get.

Did you try:

apt-cache show firefox

and see what info it gave you?

I use aptitude on my servers from the command line, with no GUI, without 
even the curses GUI.  No problem.
