But if the addons truly don't work or cause stability problems in the software, then what's the point? I've not run into anything yet that really requires FF4 or IE9. I'm happily plodding along as it's displayed in FF 3.6. I do realize that most add-ons are not broke, just not known to work or supported.
Well, I haven't had any stability issues with older addons since I use Beta 1

It all starts to get a bit rediculous when the numbers start to get large too.

21, 22, 23, 56, 57, 58, 143 etc...

Most companies restart the numbering system or rebrand sometime close to after 11 becuase the numbers start to blur togeather (Photoshop as one of many examples)

I think Mozilla is feeling stiff competition from Chrome, causing them to make big deals about everything. And apparently release new versions closer together.

Laughed at this, hehehe.

On another note, it's sad how susceptible the browser developers are to trends. Effin peer pressure man. I first noticed it when the private browsing feature became the must have.

Firefox: So you have Private browsing?

Chrome: Yeah, no biggie

Firefox: Hmm, now we do too! HA!

IE, Opera, Safari: Whatchu guys talkin about?
Ironically enough though, private browsing was one of the major contributing factors that led me to download the first major Chrome build. I had and still have no use for it since no one touches my computer but me but it was interesting at the time.

At least the private browsing was a real feature, not just some update gimmick.

Besides, I don't buy this BS at all, if Mozilla had this in plan, v4 would be long released and already updated dozens of times.
its stupid yes, and google chrome only made it worst, now version number is big deal, I suppose the logical numbering should be the engine version, not some artificial big number
ex: opera is version 11 but its presto engine is 2.x

That sort of logic makes a lot of sense.
