Are the slips a sign that the development teams are taking on more than they can handle within their estimates? I think so. Even when it was just "Mozilla" there were often these slips. Now they have several other products and it continues. I think they are trying to be too aggressive at times. These are all the tell tale signs of a software team that is pushing for too much too fast. Time to make the estimates more reasonable. And time stop trying to release too much in one release.

I think they are doing a great job overall and by far have the best browser available in Firefox, but there are some improvements that could occur in the development process.
