Hi John, I respect your opinion as I've read your posts over the years,
however; In my opinion Firefox updates are more than mere hyperactivity and
are as useful as much as antivirus updates. <shrug>

In a normal laptop/workstation GUI environment few applications are as
important as a web browser (especially these days). A web worker for example
relies on a web browser pretty heavily. Not everyone using Debian is using it
on a server, you know. ;-)
