If they chose to not enable it by default, they had a good reason for it.  We want to trust some blog post instead of the collective knowledge of all the cryptogophers at Mozilla?

according to the bug emulatorman linked, they're not worried about security but compatibility, since 1-2% of global webservers don't support tls 1.1 yet.

However, most users won't benefit from this support, because it's  disabled by default and enabling is not many people will and can do. To enable TLS/1.1 support, use "about:config" in the URL bar and search for the security.tls.version.max setting. Set its value to 2 (default is 1).
