I don't see them doing it irresponsibly, they have genuinely improved the state of the browser quickly.

I don't disagree that they've made improvements. But the improvements aren't connected to the version number. Whether they call it "Firefox 11", or "Firefox 5.11" doesn't change the content of Firefox, or what's been patched. The improvements are completely independent.

Even if this only helps them internally its been worth it and I don't see the industry in general using a set of strict versioning guidelines these days

Strict, no, but deviations like this don't help.

There's also several competitors, some of whom use the same approach.

Yes, and I dislike them doing so just as much (well, ok, slightly less as much, as I don't use them, but do use Firefox).
