Ten Million Mozilla Users Just Got More Secure

From the 'Sad But True' files:
Last week Mozilla rolled out Firefox 3.5.3, which checks the user's version of Adobe Flash. As it turns out, in one week alone, 10 million people clicked on the Adobe update, according to Mozilla.
That's a staggering number. That potentially means that 10 million people were running older out-of-date and insecure versions of Flash. It means that despite Adobe's own efforts to get people to update with their own update mechanisms and public outreach that 10 million people were still left out of the loop.
How does that correlate with Mozilla's numbers? Are 80 percent of Firefox users running un-patched versions of Firefox?
