Default Firefox update politics become contentious

From http://www.h-online.com/open/news/it...s-1268282.html

Mozilla's switch to a rapid release schedule for the Firefox browser which sees a new release every six weeks is causing confusion, consternation and criticism. The issue was brought to a head by the news that there would be no more security updates for Firefox 4; Firefox 5 is regarded as the security update for Firefox 4. Firefox 4 had just one security update in April and there will be only one more security update for Firefox 3.6. Its users will also have to join the rapid release train that is Firefox, which will then see Firefox 5 end of life'd (EOL) when Firefox 6 is released and Firefox 6 EOL'd when Firefox 7 arrives.
You don't need to be a genius to debug a pf.conf firewall ruleset, you just need the guts to run tcpdump
