Mozilla Won't Ditch Firefox Version Numbers After AllMozilla will not get rid of the version number present in Firefox’s “About” box after all, putting an end to a  rather heated debate that first surfaced a few weeks ago.

There are no plans to adjust the version number. It will remain in its current place in the About window, and we are going to continue with the current numbering scheme. - Alex Faaborg, a principal designer at Mozilla

In another message in the mozilla.dev.usability discussion list, Faaborg blamed “miscommunication inside of the user experience team” for the commotion about the departing version number.

Faaborg apologized for not weighing in on the debate earlier, saying that half of his team was on vacation and the other half had been out of the office at a user research related offsite.
