Yeah, I didn't understand that either.  When I heard TB 5 was out, I was
like wtf? I'm still on 3, I didn't know 4 was ever released either,
until I figured out they jumped an entire version to sync.

Firefox 4 was kinda buggy, but I can understand it's bugginess, in it's
defense it did introduce some new leaps in Firefox tech compared to it's
older counterparts, perhaps it was better to cleanslate to 5 and fix
those bugs in 5 with 4 being the new engine tests.
