That page doesn't explain the use of "uplift" to mean what's commonly called "upstreaming". That page refers to "uplift" meaning a patch being added to an older Firefox branch ahead of normal whole-branch promotion. (I.e. cherry pickin from the Nightly channel to Aurora, Beta or even Release ahead of Nightly as a whole becoming the new Aurora, etc.)
