Lets see: I got installed in Vitrual box:
Mint 12 KDE
Mint 12 LXDE
Mint 13 MAte
Mint 13 Cinnamon.
JUST TO SUMARIZE: Mint 13 has firefox 13, LMDE (¿rolling what?) has firefox 12
Am I VERY wrong or something is not what it should be?
Or please lets change definitions: dont use rolling as a concept, use the concept of a DEBIAN DISTRO With Mint cosmetics which will be updated each three months or whatever....
Any way.... I like MInt... :-O
sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
## Ubuntuzilla - latest Firefox, Thunderbird, Sea Monkey builds
# Install with apt-get install firefox-mozilla-build, xxx-mozilla-build, etc.
deb http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/ubuntuzilla/mozilla/apt all main
It looks like LMDE is like an afterthought in the Mint World.

For me LMDE is only good if you can set it to Stable sources. This can be done with the spins that were released at around the time Debian Stable 6 was released. We are also not far off from the release of the new Debian Stable to come out probably early next year. At that time LMDE could be set to the new Stable sources and provide a system that's solid. I would not advise setting your current LMDE to Testing sources. I've borked at least three LMDE installs that way. Latest sources are pretty much a freeze at this point, and Testing/Wheezy are due to go into freeze soon.
TBH if you want to save yourself some grief, and are determined to run Debian, look at SolusOS 1, or SimplyMEPIS 11. You may have to tweak a few things to get it where you want it, but then you don't have to worry about it.

SolusOS is one of very few Linux systems that actually works well on all my computers, usually I have to use Ubuntu here, Debian there, one for low system resources on one machine, etc., but SolusOS looks good and works well everywhere.
I think you have already got many of the LMDE refugees, you may end up getting the Mint 13 refugees as many are finding that where Mint 12 worked fine, Mint 13 is a system freeze mess. 13 only works on one of my computers, Mint 12 worked on all my computers. Much of the problem is coming from Ubuntu 12.04, so expect refugees from there as well, not to mention those who were on Ubuntu 10.04 LTS gnome and will switch to 12.04 only to discover Unity. I think SolusOS is in the right place at the right time.
I'm definitely spreading the word, and will continue to do so. I know others are as well.
