Mozilla planning to ship 4 releases this year (2011 Firefox Roadmap here). Looks like Mozilla is feeling the pressure from Google Chrome's smaller release cycles. One of the Firefox's greatest strengths is its firefox add-on (extension) community. Every major release of Firefox calls for an upgrade of the firefox release version in the add-on's manifest file(which is a new version of the add-on), shorter release cycles calls for regular add-on update which is an overhead to add-on developers and AMO reviewers. I am very eager to see how Mozilla will be handling this.
