Oh I see! Then we found the source of the problem! :-)

Firefox ESR forcefully installed from repositories on Debian,
somewhere in the middle of Jessie lifecycle, replacing IceWeasel (the
now defunct Debian fork of Firefox).
I tried Firefox ESR at past but I abandoned it, because it was very buggy.
(First time on repositories after many years, without prior testing).

I think I'll wait and when I'll get my hands to a more up to date
Linux system, I'll try IceCat again.
THANKS David for helping identifying the source of the problem!!!
Bye! :-)
