For firefox, the new release claims to offer some fixes for security
issues while the release packaged has been EOL'ed by Mozilla, meaning no
security fixes will be made to those older versions anymore.
With Thunderbird, they have been less clear and the version released with
Mageia is still supported, sort of. Because of this, and for as long as
this holds, that release will be included with Mageia 1, though newer
versions might well appear in the backports section.
I think this is really more of an issue with the new Mozilla policy making
things hard for Mageia and other distributors, than a Mageia centric
policy making things hard for Mageia users.
