You mean you never allow the update manager to patch the OS?
One thing I like about linux and ubuntu in particular is that the OS is patched almost as soon as a bug is found, as against MS who patch (usually) once a month. Firefox fell behind badly on ubuntu updates last year but even so it held to 3.6 not an earlier version until about V6 or V7. My copy of FF here is now 10.0.2. Still on Lucid, by the way.
Blocking 3* means blocking 3.6 as well as 3.0. I'm blocking 3.0* - actually, Firefox/3\.[0-57-9]
