Firefox 3.6 users to get nudged towards 8.0.1

Is this supposed to affect Iceweasel? My Debian Squeeze still runs Iceweasel 3.6. Even my Linux Mint Debian Edition Xfce only runs Firefox 5.0, updated through distribution channels.

re: FF3.6

Mozilla, don't yammer at us users, tell the tail dragging distro maintainers that always seem to be 2 or 3 or 27 FF releases out of current.

And while you're at it, get those lazy addon authors to get with the program. I won't upgrade until ALL my current addon's will work on FF8 (or if you read this tomorrow, FF9, or if you wait until next week, FF10).

Looks like the fall from the top happens quite a bit faster then the climb. Mozilla, inventing faster, quicker, better ways to commit corporate suicide.
