When I initially quoted the 3 month cycle, that was from published news
sources.  In some Mozilla forums, its become clear that they need to get the
word out its shorter than that (the 6 week cycle you mentioned).

The Mozilla view at this point seems to be forced silent updates to the next
version.  Everything that breaks in your extensions and plug-ins is your
problem with the developers of each; they don't care.  Their support shows
nothing about downgrading to a previous version.

A browser that breaks some 9 times a year seems a bit much.
