I am not familiar with Moz code, but the various bugs (so called "regressions") that keep coming up boggle my mind sometimes. For instance, various problems with the preferences box keep coming and going. Moz is billed as having an extremely modular architecture. I've been doing componentized software development for a while now and modularly built software just doesn't behave as Moz does. Once a component is completed it does cause problems for the rest of the project anymore. This doesn't seem to be the case with Mozilla. Maybe it isn't so modular after all?
