"Asa response is that of a Mozilla employee."

I am a member of mozilla.org, not a "Mozilla employee".

"Should one conclude that you (Mozilla org.)are therefore designing a browser that is not intended for end-users?"

(lowercase "m" on mozilla.org) Yes and no. mozilla.org is designing a _technology_ which can be easily made into a product for end-users. The mozilla.org binaries were never intended for end-users.

"BTW the bug still exists in ver 1.0. I thought I had managed to communicate that point, but apprently not!"

It was fixed after Mozilla 1.0. I thought I had managed to communicate that, but apparently my comment, "months after the bug had been fixed," wasn't clear. Another report of a bug that's already been fixed is worse than useless, it's damaging. Every minute that engineers and QA spend reading through bug reports for issues that are already fixed is a minute that they're not working on a problem which hasn't been fixed.
