Why is Firefox adoption slowing down?

Dave Shea notes that Firefox Growth seems to have slowed down and that the browser now has a market share of around 15%.

Actual numbers vary a lot between sites, but yes, Firefox growth has indeed slowed down when I look at the stats for this site. Over the last couple of months Firefox has actually *lost* market share. Fortunately not to Internet Explorer, but to Mozilla.

I'd like to be able to see the browser statistics for people coming to the site from search engines, but the statistics software I use (AWStats) doesn't reveal that info.
