This needs to be solved within PureBrowser package (which @hema.prathaban will take care) as Iceweasel shouldn't be part of our archive (I already explained this to Hema day or two ago).

purebrowser might need to provide firefox-esr and iceweasel as virtual packages...

New purebrowser package is uploaded to address this.

Closing it now, be sure to repopen if you detect the same bug again.
