That is probably the reason for the new version. Most of the time RedHat only 
issues new versions when backporting becomes difficult/impossible. They are 
almost as protective as Debian has been.
A web browser crashing on a distro originally designed for servers was 
probably a low priority for them. They probably assume that a browser is 
usually used to read docs or download packages.
