It already does. That feature was added in Firefox 1.5. Updates to Firefox are very small.
Firefox 3.0.10 released

It *is* much better now than it was in the FF1 days. The real problem is
that they're stuck on narrowband...

No, 1.5 MB is small. That's the size of the update file from 3.0.9 to 3.0.10 on Windows. For Linux it's even smaller, only 199 KB. That even meets your definition of small. If you're downloading 10 MB of data for a Firefox update, you're likely downloading the full installer rather than the update. I'm not sure why it would do that.
