I’ve become weary of being in Firefox’s hen house. So downloaded and extracted the
icecat.tar.gz and then ran
Everything seems good until:

My goal is to do everything over Tor and systems that are similar to Tor.
FYI, I aready tried
torsocks pamac build icecat but could not access some server.
I am fairly new to AUR so sorry if I’m asked silly questions but I open the PKGBUILD file and it says the author in a comment which is nice to see. It also has a commit to fetch and SHA256es to check against. The one thing that I missing though is a cryptographic signature authenticating that this was really submitted by the maintainer. Did I missed something somewhere?
EDIT: I tried going to https://aur.archlinux.org/cgit/aur.git/snapshot/icecat.tar.gz.asc and I get the message in bold red letters:
No signature for icecat.tar.gz
