Proposals for Incorporating Machine Learning in Mozilla Firefox

We're looking for ideas that will make Firefox 2.0 blow every other browser out of the water. People who come up with the best 3-5 ideas win Gmail accounts, and if we implement your idea you'll be acknowledged in both our paper and in Firefox credits. Your idea will also be appreciated by the millions of people who use Firefox :-). We'll also entertain Thunderbird proposals."

Would it also be possible to make it so that sometimes we can erase stuff in the inline auto complete, like I might type something by mistake but the inline autocomplete will always bring that up and there is no way to erase one address, we have to erase all addresses. But this machine learning is a great idea.

Also I was wondering if it would be able to upgrade the pop-up, lately sites have been putting pop-ups that come on the website instead of a new window and are really annoying, is there any chance to make it so that those pop-ups don't show up at all. Microsoft is going to put pop-up blocker in the next IE version and in the SP2 so getting one step ahead might help.
