It appears Mozilla has the resources to hire additional staff as
required [1]. Perhaps Mozilla needs a few Wall Street/Harvard School
of Business MBAs in their accounting department.

On more developers (perhaps things have changed a bit):

    Another interesting item in the report is the fact that Mozilla
    expenses were up in 2007 by 68 percent over 2006.
    Approximately 80 percent of Mozilla's expenses come from
    its staffing costs. What makes this really interesting is that
    Mozilla even with more paid staffers is still getting the same
    proportion of its code from external (i.e non-Mozilla)
    contributions. [2]


    The percentage of code contributed to Firefox by people not
    employed by Mozilla remained steady at about 40 percent of
    the product we ship [2]

Fuck yeah.
Mozilla would be able to hire a few more developers, excellent! I've always
felt that they're held back by an overly small development team - while this
results in a clean, stable, fast browser, it means they can't support enough
other stuff :(
Oh... wait...

Why doesn't microsoft throw some of it's weight behind Mozilla and ditch
IE forever. It doesn't suit their image.

On my IE6 this doesn't work (crash), but it does on IE7. I'm on WinXP Pro
