Thank you Bill.

I just read that Steve Wheeler was using IceCat 60, but I'm only seeing 52.6 on the gnu FTP.
Is it just about getting the source from the git repository and then proceeding with the build process ?

I'd like to know how hard it is to create an IceCat from the most recent versions of Firefox and eventually from the developer version.

the first thing that leaps to mind is that icecat is built upon the
'ESR' releases - firefox developer edition is a different browser,
released nightly - so even if you succeed at this it would really not
be "icecat" - it would probably better to use the abrowser or
iceweasel recipes, depending on what distro you runl but those may not
be compatible with the nightly release version either - in any case,
this would probably need some expertise and tweaking
