I would suggest eliminating one or other from the equation to see who's
at fault: 
 * If you open a link in another application, does Iceweasel open it
 * If you set your default browser to be something else (e.g. chromium),
   does Icedove correctly open the link in that?

Hopefully one of those will fail, showing where to report the bug. If
both tests SUCCEED, though, you've got some weird interaction between
icedove and iceweasel going on. In which case, I'd suggest talking to
the Mozilla team at pkg-mozilla-maintainers@lists.alioth.debian.org.
