It's a common thing in the general versioning scheme Mozilla (and other open-source projects, and probably some other projects) follows. The numbers aren't standard decimals anyway; there's no such thing as 1.4.1. Instead, the points delimit independent numbers.

This really allows them to be more consistent with versioning, as they're not limited to any set number of minor releases per major release, nor are they limited to a certain number of bugfix releases per major release.
