Install Iceweasel

apt-get install iceweasel is giving me;
Reading package lists... Done

firefox is already the newest version.
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.

Alas, I can find so many ways to install iceweasel. However I've no clue, which is recent enough for me to use.

Can someone help me out?
