Thanks for posting this .. I've been wondering why no updates on
firefox.  In fact, pending updates, I already downloaded and am using
the mozilla.org tarball.  I highly value having a secure browser, so
am willing to spend the extra time making it fit into sarge.

I'm not sure I agree that taking the whole version update from moz.org
is less desirable than just incorporating the security updates into a
"frozen" browser feature package.  After all, if your smart enough to
install debian, you're smart enough to learn any new browser features.
