? You seem to be lumping two totally different aspects of bug trackers
together as one.
Firefox and Thunderbirds bug tracker is not even remotely as difficult
as OOo's. While I agree with you that the Mozilla devs tend to close
Feature Requests with a WONTFIX (or they agree it would be a nice
feature, but it just stays open with no one giving it any love) too
often, they do address real bugs fairly quickly - and the reason they
tend to neglect feature requests is because they - especially the
Thunderbird devs - are very short-staffed.

Bug#'s? Thunderbird has never had a problem 'retrieving' our mail in our
office, and we've been using it (40-60 users over the years) since about
version 0.8, so whatever your problem is/was, obviously it is/was
something fairly obscure.
