The auto-show is still in development over in bug 102832. Good places to try it out are Bugzilla buglists, the W3C, htmlhelp.com and many machine-generated manuals or documents, such as the GNU Make manual."

gui for no pop-ups. this is a killer feature but most people won't have a clue how to implement it.

work with major banks (and other key ssl sites) to get them supported/up to speed. I use citibank and it says I don't have 128 bit encryption, though I do, right? I must open ie to bank.

let users add search engines. (and a keyword system as with ie so as to use the search engine you want; then let developers know that they can urge customers to add their site to moz!)

tab recall would be very nice

bugs:

when I open the help from the prefs gui I usually get: Context sensitive help: write me! file: mozilla/extensions/help/resources/locale/en-US/cs_nav_prefs_navigator.html

when I alter the display of items on a page and it redraws the page horizontally, remnants are left on the page. (Vertically it seems fine). I must flash the body display in and out to get rid of them. This is a serious bug. What is the problem here?

tabs often don't close until done a 2nd time

just some ideas based on practical *user* experience with moz. I understand some are being worked on, but solve these - and a few more obviously - and you have a knockout browser. The pop-up pref and tabs are your killer features to emphasize to users alongside the great password/privacy features. They'll hear clear enough that moz has the best css/dom standards, which they'll like, though they won't have a clue what it really means.

(One linkbar aside: I don't think many developers will want to bloat their code to add link info that is already covered on the page. I know I won't.)
