I have the same problem, I do the tests that are listed in the file 
/usr/share/bug/iceweasel/presubj. The problem is not the extensions or 
~/.mozilla/firefox directory, it has plugins and more particularly the 
flash plugin.

I use the flash plugin: flashplugin-nonfree

I recently upgraded my EeePC from Squeeze to Wheezy, the 
flashplugin-nonfree package has been updated from version 1:2.8.1 to 
version 1:2.8.3.

I did not have the crach of iceweasel with version 1:2.8.1, with version 
1:2.8.3 iceweasel crash.

I think the bug can be re-assigned to the flashplugin-nonfree package.

On another PC, I use the flashplayer-mozilla package and have the same 
problem. One note, I did not crash with epiphany, yet I can see sites 
that use flash. I do not know what flash plugin epiphany uses.
