It's obvious from the actions of Mozilla they thought 15.x was the better temporary choice.

Right, my point is, since 15.x is the better temporary choice, they needed to push out a downgrade from 16.0 to 15.x.

(This time it didn't matter too much since the vulnerability was not a severe one. But they need to have the mechanism available the next time a new version turns out to have a security hole.)
