Hmm..., a search for firefox, 1.0.3, amd64 in shows 
only *this* thread:

I think you're wrong:
[b]Packaging Status:[/b]
i386 -- Staging at revision 
amd64 -- Not packaged
ppc -- Not packaged

And all packages.gz under amd64 were empty (0 byte).

So,my assumption is, that there are no backports for amd64. Am I right?

Kind regards
