Comment That's not what it says at all vs Chrome (Score 3, Informative) 80

"The Chrome Security team has been a source of innovation in the browser security space. Tor Browser Bundle is based on Firefox and thus inherits progress made by Mozilla automatically. While improvements in Chrome may not be appropriate for Firefox, they could be integrated in Tor Browser Bundle. In a best case scenario, members of the Chrome Security team may be allowed to work with the Tor Project on these changes."

Basically it's saying: Chrome is also doing good stuff, combine it with the stuff you get from Mozilla for a better result.

Security bugs filed against Firefox are private until a new release is out to the users. If the issue is critical (looks like it can be exploited), it will be in a x.0.1 update. If it isn't, then it will be in n+1.

Another way of stating what you said is "if Firefox engineers find a way to 0-day their own browser, they fix it before plasting the information on how to do it all over the internet".

In any problem, if you find yourself doing an infinite amount of work, the answer may be obtained by inspection.
