Probably not, but they're coming out quite fast these days and apparently without a great amount of testing.

Mozilla re-releases Firefox 9, backs out fix causing crashes
A day after it shipped Firefox 9, Mozilla quickly released an update after backing out a bug fix that was causing some Mac, Linux and Windows browsers to crash.

It's a browser. I use it to browse. It gets me to all my destinations. I like it. It works fine. I tweak it a little. I like my add-ons & themes. They continue to work fine in each update.

Nuff said.

I will wait for 2 or 3 weeks before upgrading Firefox :) .
