Actually there are few things that make GNU Iceweasel different from
Debian Iceweasel, they are described on our web site:

1) When the host part of a link is rewritten then an alert is showed
   to the user, this should happen on sites that change the link to a
   page on the "onclick" event and point to another page.  Before you
   click on that link you see in the status bar the original URL but
   in reality you will be redirected to another page on the click,
   this page can be used to record the web preference and after it
   redirect to the correct location.

2) If on a page is present a link to a zero sized image on another
   site then the hosting image site is blocked to store cookies.  This
   is for the same reason, to don't allow another site to "spy" user
   habits and don't get notified on every request to other sites.
   This mechanism was noticed and if I remember correctly, reported on
   this ML long time ago.

3) We are using an our plugin finder service that shows only Free
   plugins.  This service can be used by original Mozilla Firefox too
   changing the pfs.datasource.url attribute in about:config.

Sorry if I didn't see your question before.  Probably you will not be
interested in all these modifications even in that case I think there
is much we can share beetween GNU Iceweasel and Debian Iceweasel, what
do you think?
