Go to about:config in Iceweasel.
Change the preference general.useragent.extra.firefox from
"Iceweasel/220.127.116.11" (or whatever your version is to "Firefox/18.104.22.168".
Then web sites won't be able to tell the difference, and FWIW you
should report the web site to it's owners as broken. User-agent
detection is broken behavior.
As far as extensions are concerned I have yet to run into an extension
that would not work in Iceweasel that works in Firefox. Again, if it's
making a distinction, it's broken behavior that should be reported to
the author(s) as a bug.
