Lets hope they don't pull an Apple. Update you right out of compatibility to newer updated apps. Anyone remember the iPod aka "iFool"? Can't update it past 3.01 and when apps that once worked get "updated", they don't work or get removed. even purchased ones. However, I do wish FF would follows MS's process. Update on the 2nd tuesday each month.

Apple has supported updates a hell of a lot longer than your average android phone.

Eventually the hardware won't run the software. Remember iOS 4 on a 3G? Exactly.

Personal opinion, and off topic, it's the worst update strategy I've ever heard. If there's an update, release it. If someone wants to plan their updates every 2nd Tuesday, nothing's stopping them. I like knowing that for all my software, when a fix for something is released, it is available immediately.

Oh come on, we all know it's better to sit on Zero Day Exploits for half a month because you have a police that says only release on the second Tuesday. If that means everyone is exploited then so be it.

Off topic? How? The model used by MS for it's updates allows users to be ready for updates. By pushing updates whenever they want, is a PITA and for those who don't have a big data plan, every byte counts so get it right the first time and allow the users to do the rest. If FF can't do this, then they are no better then the developers over at GO who seem to update GO SMS every other day. So, I've turned off my updates. Simple fix. When a new release is out, I'll check it out then and only then will I update.

And I was being a smart azz by the way about MS's every 2nd tuesday of the month.
