What is the difference between firefox-esr and firefox-release? I have
been downloading the tar file from mozilla since this whole thing

remain behind until the next point release. I am perfectly happy to
continue downloading from Mozilla if that will keep me current, and
Debian's repo will not.

No more Iceweasel brand. The Debian can use the Firefox name. So change the

In the case of wheezy, that would be wheezy-backports. Also, note that
firefox-esr is available as well as firefox-release. The former is
closer to the iceweasel experience in Debian.
Various metapackages depend on iceweasel. It might be prudent to leave
it in place for now, depending on your circumstances.
install Firefox and you will have fresh browser,
currently v45. It works fine for me.
Using firefox-esr on jessie here. No complaints so far.
