Why would you rather not have Firefox at all, than have an uptodate version (even if you rarely use the latter)? The problem with applications that are given away for free is that people become sceptical of them. Microsoft gave away Windows 10 for one year and the take up wasn't as much as they expected because in people's mind free is not something they want;. They want a product that can do something useful.
I wouldn't say that was the main reason. 
The moral of this post is that FREE software doesn't create excitement as much as a paid version. Now go and figure this out why?.
I don't think this is all that true: I haven't _bought_ any software for a long time, so for me, free software is of _more_ interest.
