I went through mozillas bug list and found several bugs that are good
candidates to get fixed. If you see others, please complement this list.

 #314314: mozilla: FTBFS on hurd-i386: Needs porting [patch] - those
 poor porters need this patch ... lets do it. It is needed for
 kfreebsd-i386 port too AFAIK
 #323906: mozilla-browser: Mozilla crashes frequently on AMD64 (I
 think same as 321644
 #321427: mozilla-mailnews: Upgrading to 1.7.10 causes UI problems
 with Mozilla mail - this one was fixed in 1.7.11 already, but he
 missed to document this in changelog.
 #309124: policy violation of 12.5
 #207024: libnspr4: copyright file not accurate
