swiftfox is no faster. Iceweasel IS fast. If its not something is wrong with your system.

Try turning IpV6 off. Type about:config in Iceweasel's address bar and look for network.dns.disableIPv6 right click the value and change it to true.

If the option is avalable in the about:config page then it would.

Iceweasel as far as I know with its differences is really just its name and logo / icons and maybe some slight tweaks with the .deb packaging. Its really just a fork of Firefox due to licensing issues with the name and logo of the firefox browser and Debian's stance on FOSS.
