That may be because Firedragon is built against the normal repos and not testing. When that package reaches the repos, the next time Firedragon is rebuilt it should get built against the updated package. If you are curious or very bored, you could test this by rebuilding Firedragon on your system(assuming you have some time to waste since rebuilding a browser takes a while)

Either way, I think it is a good heads up to know it is coming.
