It's important our assumptions about this issue are as
well founded as possible. I don't think yours are right.

I could well believe my assumptions about what they
think are wrong too.

If one assumes that the only reasons people who are
aware of FF don't switch is because they think it's
difficult or expensive, the above factors are irrelevant
to our current marketing challenge.

My experience has been a bit less emphatic, but I do agree
that one of our primary challenges is to just get people to use
FF (or think they are) for one browsing session.

Again, I think it's important to have clarity and consensus on
just exactly what our primary marketing challenges are.

You sound like you know what you're talking about.
If you try to organize it, I'll try to help.

One that's different from the press release that is to be sent to
mainstream press?
