Yeah, this happened in ubuntu Horay. fx 1.0.7 was released as a security update for 1.0.6 included in horay, but they kept the version number the same, to avoide dependency issues. It was 1.0.7, but it was names something like firefox-1.0.6-ubuntu-2

This sort of thing has to happen to save the security teams having to repackage apps just so they don't break with new version numbers. I'd rather they were working on security issues than repackaging other apps so they don't break.
