Why is this taking so long?

The new version 61.0 have fixed 3 "CRITICAL" impact security problems and 5 "HIGH" impact security problems as compared with the old version 60.0.2 which is the latest in the Ubuntu repositories.

How long will it take until this hits the "stable" repositories?

David F. (malteworld) wrote :

@mkurz: That won't happen. Ubuntu's "stable" repositories are never updated after the original release. Security updates updates are shipped to "[release]-security" and general updates to "[release]-update".

In my experience it takes 2–4 days for packages from the Mozilla Security PPA to appear in the main "security" and "updates" repositories.
