If you allow it FF will now automatically update similar to Chrome, without nagging you at all. When I setup someone else's machine I always make sure the automatic update is turned on. That's a huge maintenance timesaver.
I look at updates differently. I view an update as a possible disruption/mess that I don't want to deal with while I'm in the middle of something important, so I like to be able to pick my time. Eg, if I'm relying on a FF extension during a project, I don't want to chance it will be disabled by an update... and I generally don't want to take time to check out how long my current extensions are predicted to work.
