This isn't necessarily true, it just means it hasn't been tested thoroughly
by the debian team I believe. If you want recent Mozilla software it has to
come from Experimental. I run icedove and iceweasel with sogo plugins.

Easy enough to install also, just put the experimental apt sources in then
install with apt-get -t experimental... That package will stay at that level
and all others should stay squeeze.
