  • Hey Isaac, this looks like a good list of subjects for your Firefox discussion. I’d also like to hear some comments on the recent uptick in Mozilla publicity for Firefox, and also if you know of any updates to Mozilla’s stance on Thunderbird (I know, getting a bit off topic…).

    Thanks!



  • @dxklann I should be able to talk about those. Thanks for the suggestions!
