Herein lies the problem with Mozilla. The "get it out there" release of NS6 was utter crap, it was slow, unstable, and had many many annoying features that even Mozilla didn't. If AOL/Netscape could have waited and released .8 as NS6 you'd have many many more people using NS6 then are doing so right now. The people heard Mozilla was the basis for NS6 and said in their minds, "eww NS6 sucks, so Mozilla must too." I can't really fault them for thinking this way, because people in general don't want to try new things or give crappy software a second chance. I can only hope netscape 6.1 whenever it's released will be based on the final mozilla 1.0 codebase instead of their dysfunctional branch.
