I've notice that abrowser is getting behind on the updates, AFAIK the current release is 46, meanwhile we have 44 at Trisquel.

Is there some change on the update schedule for Abrowser?

What I'd like to understand is what kind of challenge each new release of Firefox brings to the Trisquel team. Since I have no idea how a new release of abrowser is built, I apologize if the following question is totally naive and/or stupid, but can't the Trisquel team "just" apply an existing package helper that deals with freedom issues to the upstream Firefox package? Isn't this how some Ubuntu packages are patched for Trisquel? What's particular about Firefox?
