--- "Mozilla should never steal focus, all UI elements should be inside their respective windows, and the UI should not change unexpectedly (i.e things shift around) when you interact with it." would be a lot better. ---

I honestly believe this is the only thing that _I_, as a user of only the browser component feel is required for the 1.0 release of Mozilla.

I'd say in that area you're pretty much set, so concentrate your efforts on other components of Mozilla when possible. Reassign most of the developers working on the browser to Mail, Composer and general problems with the Mozilla framework only leaving a few people to fix top crasher and render bugs. Roll out 1.0, and then continue adding features to the browser and gecko.
