Reasons for using 1.0.2 are if you're a company that either tests and preconfigures it's software before deploying it on the companies computers and therefore wishes to have a version that doesn't differ hugely from the former or if use mozilla's codebase for your own product and don't want to have an ever moving target (the API of the 1.0.x series is frozen).
There's no real reason for not going with 1.2.1 if you use it on your own computer (except if you encounter problems with 1.2.1 that aren't present in 1.0.x).
