In fact (shame on me) I'm not really sure : does software go from Unstable to Testing at any time, or only when Testing becomes Stable ?

In Debian Firefox is Iceweasel. But currently Debian has the 4.0 version just in the Experimental repo. See at http://packages.debian.org/search?suite=all§ion=all&arch=any&searchon=names&keywords=Iceweasel So if you want it you can allow the Experimental repo in your package manager or just download the package and install it by hand. In this case you'll have to control the updates yourself, at least until the package be in the Testing repo.
It is incredible Debian has not yet the version 4 really available... in Fedora I have Firefox 4 since ages! Yet, I thought LMDE was a rolling release...
