I donīt think it has been mentioned before, and since I donīt know if this goes under stability or features or useability I think itīs worth to mention it now.

When Mozilla 1.0 there should be high a priority to have ALL major plugins running flawlessly. This adds tremendously to the end user experience. I could also think of a routine in the installer that detects plugins already installed for other browsers and offers to copy them to appropriate Mozilla directory.

I also second the idea of having a modular uodate mechanism, so you donīt have to download the complete browser everytime an update gets released.

Besides this I think the priorites should be: 1. stability 2. UI polish 3. Speed.

If the app is stable and easy to use, speed is not the major issue. I also think that Mozilla already reached a high level of standard compliance. More would of course be better, but as it right now itīs ok for must end users.
