To me it's a mostly version numbering problem.
For FF itself, there are some feature updates, but only a few, which Mozilla says are 
thoroughly tested.
Complementory modules are automatically updated, if they don't use any features that 
have changed.
If they do, the module is disabled the first time FF is run after the update.
The developers of these modules are notified by email, including information on the 
affected features and how to correct.
If one is using one of the disabled modules, that could presumably require reverting.
The biggest problem is immediately ending security support for older versions.  If one 
is using a module which had been disabled in the latest release.

Glad I'm using Seamonkey.  They're not changing their release policy.
They also don't need as many external modules, as more functions are integrated.
