If you're a Arch based distro user a version based on latest firefox ESR is available on AUR or chaortic-aur repo (compiled version).

@redstarfish I'm on Arch based Manjaro and do see it there. I use ESR when I use Tor Browser

@cypnk > formerly Iceweasel
Iceweasel and IceCat are two different entities, the former being a rebrand of Firefox for Debian of the days when Firefox didn't yet have a branding excerpt for Debian in its license.

@tdemin I was referring to the name, not the project. Actually, on that page, they have addressed it:

"Previously, this GNU browser project was also named IceWeasel, but that proved confusing"
