Also there are some stability issue's. Bitwise GmbH is working on Firefox so we
as commuity can easly compile it again for OS/2 and eComStation.
What will be done are the following issue's:

* Currently the Mozilla foundation is thinking of removing the OS/2

The total goal is to get the current Firefox version compiling again on OS/2/eComStation.
The amount of money we need is 8000 Euro for 3 months of full work on Firefox.
