Legacy is supposed to be "bugfixes only" - no? (If
everything is just
updated, how is it different from the current releases?)
Legacy exists as a service to users of older releases. There's no
restriction that they're not allowed the latest versions unless they
upgrade their distro. (YIKES that brings back nightnares from my M$

It's not; you cannot modify it.
It's GPL licenced so ofcourse your can (actually it's triple-licensed,
but GPL is one of the licenses).
And since Firefox it part of their product, the distro sucks too.
there's nothing they can do about it.
It doesn't make any sense to worry about "patent encumbered codecs" if
restrictions like these are acceptable.
Ummm... Are we even talking about the same product here??
