Default The new Update Acceptance Criteria are broken (was: Heads Up - New Firefox update)

Looks like the F13 build got karma quickly enough to land directly in stable
after all, the F12 build, on the other hand, was stuck in testing for 2 days
before finally making it out to stable. Yet another blatant example of
failure of the Update Acceptance Criteria, needlessly exposing our users to
critical vulnerabilities.

(And no, by giving yet another special exception to Firefox wouldn't be a
solution. ;-) This problem can hit any other app as well.)
