Mozilla & Gecko clones A remarkably well reasoned editorial by Peter Bright at Ars discusses the implications of the new Firefox release schedule. The Crux of the argument is that by complaining about the "new" Firefox release, corporate customers are fundamentally misunderstanding the web and their place in it. He also reflects on historical reasons for their attitude and what they should do in the future to maintain parity with the evolution of the web.

Actually, unlike Firefox, Chrome supports both .MSIs and GPO so I'd say this latest move by Moz was just dumb.

Is this what you are looking for?

Firefox killed about a third of my extensions with their little stunt, including some that my customers counted on for security.

Like what? Really, if the extensions don't follow firefox update speed, you should not blame Firefox. Maybe you made some poor extension choices?
