I don't think the concern with backporting FireFox really revolves around system dependencies. I think mainly it's because the model for stable releases in Ubuntu and Debian has always been to never upgrade to newer versions, but ONLY to backport fixes to existing versions. The very definition of "stable" to those distributions means no new major versions. It would be a major break in policy for them.
