Not advisable to add a repository from another system?

I never use foreign repos but plenty of people do, at least until it blows up. I've been thinking about trying the v60 icecat when it goes stable. Is trisquel still on the 52.x ver?

p.s. I have no idea if it would coexist with firefox-esr

What does the youtube vid have to do with it if it's for Mint?

Correct: https://wiki.debian.org/DontBreakDebian

The binary install from GNU has a lot better chance of being compatible than a Trisquel Ubuntu package.

But it's your system. You get triple your money back if you break Debian by installing foreign packages. :)

I tested the gnu icecat download. Appears not to be a problem.
