I use icecat, iceweasel and lynx. icecat has a tor browser button extension if you want to use it with tor.

I use w3m, links2, surf, icecat, and if i absolutely need to for a broken site iceweasel

I'm in w3m and links 90% of the time
surf would bring that up to 99%

icecat has tor browser button. there is also iceweasel-hardened-preferences
the vast majority of my data transits over Tor.

If you are on i3, you may like qutebrowser.

See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Firefox#Trademark_and_logo for reasons, why Firefox is not respecting the free software distribution guidelines.

just to be clear about firefox because no one made this explicit, iceweasel is a FSDG-free version of firefox, and icecat is a FSDG-free version of firefox-esr - if you are familiar with using firefox, you would notice not much difference using either iceweasel or icecat
