IDK what the position is WRT Waterfox, but I don't think Pale Moon or
Basilisk are likely to make it into Derbian repos as there are,
potentially, license issues regarding branding.

In any case, keeping up to date with Pale Moon shouldn't be an issue, as
it has its own, internal, update method (I suspect Basilisk is the
same).  You get the choice of 'update automatically', 'notify and let me
choose when to update' or 'never update'.

As you've seen, it's not too difficult.  Just remember to pin FF though,
if you do decide to roll back to v52.  Otherwise you might end up
updating FF accidentally.

I'm speaking from experience.   :-)

No problem.
