I think the press (overly) publicized the add-on leak fix as it progressed through Firefox's 6-week release pipeline (Nightly -> Aurora -> Beta -> Release).

This is the case, this particular news has been reported and HN frontpaged when it came in Aurora and when it came in Beta, iirc.

That's my working theory, too. So the same improvements get reported four times, and people don't remember which channel the improvement was released on.
