Well perhaps you should try some other distro then.

Lunar does NOT support versioning at this time.  The distro always has
the latest, safe, stable version of any given module.  For mozilla it
is version 1.4.

The fact that mozilla-1.4 works for everyone else is PRECISELY the point
on why it is in moonbase, and NOT mozilla-1.3.
