Ubuntu (and Debian) always seem to be a bit behind on Firefox security
updates. Why, I've never understood as Linux distros pride themselves on
quick security updates.
I've seen it take 7-10 days after Mozilla releases the updated versions
(Firefox and Thunderbird) before Debian or Ubuntu make them available.
HOWEVER, I was wondering about 184.108.40.206 as well as it's been quite a while
now. So I did some checking and.....
Unlike 220.127.116.11, 18.104.22.168 doesn't appear to be a security related update.
It's just a single bugfix.
Therefore I'm guessing we won't see a 22.214.171.124 update from Ubuntu. As long
as they (eventually) take care of the security-related updates, I'm
cool. Nine out of 10 of them wouldn't affect me anyway.
