When Firefox comes out with the change the author needs to add an a "flipBunny" flag. This gets set when the getExtension for Firefox call succeeds, and the bunny gets flipped when the flag is true.

It will because Firefox auto-updates its user base. And this is the point, both Chrome and FF auto-update their user bases. So for the period of time when one has updated and the other hasn't, there will necessarily be some users left out and authors have no way to remedy the situation. If vendor specific prefixes are used, authors can at least update their content to handle the differences during this period.
