You've missed the point, though to be fair it wasn't spelled out very

The "iceweasel" name is historic now.  The trademark issues with
Mozilla have been resolved.  In jessie and stretch, iceweasel is a
*transitional* package, existing only to bring in firefox-esr for
people who had previously been using the browser under that name.
Once you've got firefox-esr installed, you can remove the "iceweasel"
transitional package.

As for your original issue, I'm stumped.  Firefox-esr (and iceweasel
before it) have Javascript enabled by default.  If your Javascript web
site isn't loading in those browsers, and you're sure you've tried it with
the default settings, then the reason is something much too subtle for me.

(If you haven't tried it with the default settings yet, that would be
the next thing I'd try.  Create a new browser profile, or create a
whole new Debian user account if you want a *really* clean slate.)
