I am now a Mozilla Bugzilla contributor. (Mozilla Bugzilla: sounds
a bit like Megilla Gorilla, but I digress!) It's not really very
hard once you get registered. I will report on bugs for both
Thunderbird and Firefox in the future. I reported on the verbosity
issue with the underlying addresses of hyperlinks in Thunderbird
being announced by screen readers. I used to be a private beta

If you pick "the wrong one" in the eyes of the folks at Mozilla,
it will end up being recategorized by them. But if you know
you're making a feature request from the outset, it makes sense to
identify it as such. There are times (like this one) where one
could argue that the line is far from perfectly clear.
