Maybe they should distribute it as a portable app version instead.
Firefox is a pretty critical product, the rate of security releases is unlike to change. Dapper is likely to face the same issues once 2.0 is released. A better mechanism should be found.
Remove the system dependancies and ship Firefox as a portable app or as a klik. The extra cost of move additional bytes is less than the increased benefit from additional security.
