General rules for updates are that they are only for security bug
fixes, not to get new features. 

I think the best chance for getting firefox2 in dapper would be the

firefox 2 isn't there and I have heard some discussion previously about
it saying that it is hard to backport as a lot of stuff depends on the
gecko engine.
