But note that security fixes may be slow. I'm using Bullseye and the
last security update to Firefox on Jan 8th took 9 days to migrate from
unstable to testing. Thought I'd mention this, because Peter says the
machine is being setup for a 'naive friend' so that would imply relying
on getting security fixes promptly and without manual intervention.

In my case, I saw the security announcement so installed Firefox
manually from unstable, but unknown to me at the time, one of the
updated dependences had a critical bug that broke several other
programs in obscure ways.
