Seemed feasible (in fact it's quite possible, I just haven't done it).

Then it's possibly extensions.
Was there a version difference between Firefox and Iceweasel?
Any extensions appear to be missing after the move?
Have you tried an alternative browser (or ping) to rule out network
problems?

To fix problems [*1] with extensions see Mozilla documentation:-
http://kb.mozillazine.org/Uninstalling_extensions
http://kb.mozillazine.org/Problematic_extensions

Repost if you have problems.

Cheers

[*1] I've found some extensions no longer have an uninstall option from
within Iceweasel/Firefox - see the above links and check:-
~/.mozilla/firefox/gibberish.default/extensions
and
/usr/lib/iceweasel/extensions

If you still find some don't "remove" there's also:-
/usr/lib/mozilla/extensions
and
/usr/share/mozilla/extensions
