I agree there. Neither Thunderbird nor SeaMonkey (just thinking of it 
because of the shared core MailNews stuff) have the amount of paid QA 
personnel to systematically verify all fixed bugs that affect them. That 
said, we don't even have that for Firefox - while we try to get to 
everything in the Firefox product on Bugzilla, Core, Toolkit etc. look 
much worse and we are trying to get to that with some other ideas.

That said, it could potentially be a pretty good volunteer onramp to ask 
people to look over FIXED qe-verify+ bugs in Thunderbird and MailNews 
Core (putting up a query and/or wiki page should be easy for that) and 
try to verify that those have been fixed correctly.

Just something to think about.
