- topcrashes mostly unchanged from Thunderbird/StatusMeetings/2009-12-22

- 5% – extensions
- 6% – no stack in the report
- 14% – storage
- 19% – oom and the like, so cause is unclear

- Expanded Columns e.g. for IMAP size – missing from folder Pane – workaround: use extra folder columns add-on – GS topic, [bug]

- SUMO for MoMo aka SuMoMo – SuMoMo project plan
- theming done but awaiting SSL widget code from GS & Gozer push of theming SVN updates
- since SuMoMo uses SSL, waiting for GS to give us GS search widget code that we can put on the sidebar that works with SSL, expected a fix before Christmas (not rocket science since since all the GS widgets except the Satisfaction Search widget that we are using allow SSL, followed up with GS developer January 4)
