I'm not sure what Novell's policy is in this. I notice I've not had an
update to FF for a long time. In fact, I'm still on 1.0.x on my laptop.
On my work desktop (XP), I'm on 1.5 and it auto-updated to 1.5.0.2 on
Friday. You can see the 1.5.0.2 directory tree there with a 4/17/06
date.

I doubt the security enhancements will make it into the 1.0.x versions
since they're now "old" and Mozilla doesn't - AFAIK - put security
tweaks into older versions. Rather, they simply upgrade the whole lot.

Looking at some RPM repositories, I don't see any 1.5.0.2 RPM files for
SUSE/SuSE out there yet.

Maybe you could make one? :)
