Mozilla & Gecko clones Mozilla has released Firefox 7. Unlike releases of Firefox 5 and Firefox 6 which were relatively minor upgrades to the browser, Firefox 7 includes a number of significant improvements, most important of which is probably the drastically reduced memory usage.

A Long term, sorry extended support release should have at least a 2 year lifespan.

Ok, I know that 42 is the answer to life etc but obviously someone at Mozilla thinks that life is too short. And, by a long way.

Here is the Extended Support Release (ESR) proposal wiki:

https://wiki.mozilla.org/Enterprise/Firefox/ExtendedSupport:Proposal

Please contribute your undoubtedly invaluable ideas on how Firefox can be more responsive to the changing web than IE, yet less volatile than Chrome, in order to satisfy everybody.

Just quietly, it looks to me as though the wiki, so far, has a far better proposal than you do.
