Browser version numbers are completely irrelevant. It's new features or changing behavior which is causing problems for Enterprises because they require a complete regression test of all internal web tools (in theory at least).
So even if FF5 would have been called FF184.108.40.206 the new features (CSS animations, more HTML5 support, various internal changes) would mandate a thorough regression test. You can't blindly roll out a new browser version just because the version number was incremented by 0.0.1 instead of 1.
