There is simply no way to backport them all, you would have to push
the 1.7 branch to woody (even 1.4 is not sufficient because it's
already unsupport upstream AFAIK).

This is quite complicated because Mozilla's upgrades are known to
break profiles, and Debian's mozilla has a few dependencies which you
have to backport, too (Galeon etc.).

All in all, fixing Mozilla for woody isn't particularly rewarding.
Even SuSE doesn't dare to fix Mozilla security bugs, so it's not a
Debian-specific problem at all.
