Mozilla & Gecko clones Firefox 10 Arrives Today with Extended Support for Businesses. Though the software does bring an array of tweaks and enhancements for both users and developers, it's perhaps most notable for the fact that it marks the debut of the business-oriented Extended Support Release (ESR) program. One can check out what’s new and known issues for this version of Firefox by reading Mozilla's release notes. Perhaps the most important change from a user's perspective is that add-ons and themes are assumed to function, rather than not function as assumed by previous Firefox versions, meaning that the update process won't leave a user with familiar extensions disabled and needing updates.

Ubuntu style version numbering

Why didn't Firefox just go with an Ubuntu style version numbering system? So that this release would be version 12.2: Alpha, beta, stable, or ESR depending upon which channel you are using. They could even change over to this system once Firefox hits version 12 in a few months.
