The whole point of running a *stable* distribution, like Ubuntu Dapper,
is that it includes a fixed set of applications.
These programs are supported by ubuntu, they receive security fixes
(that are often backported from more recent releases), but they do not
change during the lifetime of the distro.
That way you know that if your computer works fine today, it'll most
probably work fine tomorrow, even if firefox has been security updated
If you want the latest and greatest software, if you want to always be
up to date, I suggest you switch to an unstable distro. Or install the
software you need manually (from 3rd party repositories, or by
downloading the .tgz on firefox.com).
