I second this request, on one condition: that the ESR release (and I'm
talking about Firefox only) be marked as ESR rather than 17, 24 and so

So we would have a www/firefox package and a www/firefox-esr. The
latter would automatically upgrade to the latest ESR available,
regardless of the number.

For example the next Firefox esr will be 31.0. When Firefox24 reaches
version 24.7.0, it will jump automatically to 31.0.

I think this would also make the maintainer's job easier.
