Yes, but users that run unstable should really check what they are
upgrading and should NOT be running dist-upgrade blindly. If you must,
then either do the little extra manual work of apt-get upgrading and then
manually apt-get installing individual (conflicting) packages, live with
their choice of using unstable or use testing (recommended).

Many mozilla user would probably care if their favorite package would
be unneccersarily delayed. I personally use galeon and don't mind
an extra day or two.
