Of course. Unfortunately, the Debian repo sometimes could not update the 
SID branch due to the safety patches that requires.

Anyway, the Arch editions of Firefox are easy to keep it updated, with 
the patches that are being used for Iceweasel (I've checked in the 
"about:buildconfig" in both versions of Firefox {Debian and Arch}, and 
actually, there's no a featured difference between both versions in 
questions of patches and flags).

PS: If could be possible, please restore the "about:iceweasel" easter 
egg. It represents the reason of existence of Iceweasel.
