If anyone has any advice, pointers, etc on how to proceed I would

I would think that the method you described above should work, but you
may have to move places.sqlite to another folder where Iceweasel can't
see it. Upon starting, Iceweasel should rebuild places.sqlite (the
Iceweasel 3.0 bookmarks file) using the data in bookmarks.html (the old
Iceweasel 2.0 bookmarks file).
If that doesn't work, look here for more information:
