Look, this isn't that complex. Adobe used an method from an interface in their plugin. The interface was NOT frozen. Frozen interfaces are clearly denoted in the source. Interfaces that are not frozen are subject to change at any time. That interface *did* change, as Darin fixed the last important bugs before it froze for 1.0, so the plugin was no longer binary-compatible and stopped working. Looking at the scope of the changes, it looks like there is not an extensive "rewrite" to be done on the plugin; probably some minor tweaking and a recompile.
We can't halt the development process and freeze interfaces prematurely because someone decided to use them before they were done. If you still don't get why the responsibility is with Adobe to fix this problem, I again suggest that you cease complaining about it and the Mozilla developers, because it's just making you look silly and ignorant.
