At this point, it is only in experimental.  That doesn't establish a schedule 
for migration to testing.  Since we are no longer under freeze, an upload to 
experimental indicates that the DD uploading the package has doubts about it's 
quality, and is seeking wider testing before even uploading to unstable.  
(This may be due to the quality of the upstream software OR packaging 

Once the package hits unstable, you can use 
<http://packages.qa.debian.org/i/iceweasel.html> to watch the "testing 
migration" and watch it move to Wheezy.  Normally, I think 15 days is the 
waiting period, but that can be controlled somewhat by the DD performing the 
upload to unstable.  It can also get "hung" in other transitions.
