They didn't change their update policy but their release/development
model. FF 5 is an update to FF 4, but 3.6 got an update to 3.6.18, too.
This means that Mozilla's update policy hasn't changed.

At what point exactly? Basically all that has changed is the version,
IHMO FF 5 can better be described as FF 4.1. The user experience hasn't
changed and the update meets all requirements of the update policy, so I
really don't see a problem here.
