In my AntiX install. Just download the tar.bz2 64bit firefox 11 download. You can extract it in either /home or /opt/ Then make a launcher for it from whatever Desktop you are using, (I use Fluxbox), and then you are good to go.

By the way/ Iceweasel is Firefox in Debian and can be installed via your package manager also.
