If you don't want rapid updates you can try Firefox ESR, which updates roughly annually. Firefox 10 ESR was the first; Firefox 17 ESR is the second such release.

Firefox 17 released

The ESR program updates roughly on par with Firefox. I deploy ESR at work and the standard release at home. This is by design. I am glad for the bug and security fixes.

So the frequency isn't really any different, but I have some level of confidence that I am not going to have to go through the re-education process for all my users by staying on ESR. It looks like what it is for a longer period. The constant updates are essentially identical.
