Right because it is an upstream issue we don't know when they will
release a fix so we can't say till they have released a new version
whether the issue is fixed or not.

It's not that we don't give out the information we simply don't have
it so can't give it.  Firefox as I understand it are now working on a
similar release schedule as chrome so they are releasing every 6 weeks
or so iirc.  So it might get fix in this 6 week cycle it might be that
they have changed the behaviour or it might get released 6 weeks after
that there is no way for us to tell till we get a change log around
beta or if the change lands in FF nightlies.
