Actually, that's not true. That functionality only works if you use the 
firefox version right from the firefox folks, the ones from openSUSE 
have that functionality disabled. The intent is to publish new RPMs when 
new firefoxes become available rather than use the update mechanism 
built into firefox itself.

Of course, the update mechanism built-in does work for themes and 
extensions.
