I don't think so. I think Mozdev should focus on providing the best
tools for developers and development communities, which can include the
kinds of users that contribute to development by testing development
versions, filing bugs, etc. but does not include normal end-users.

It sounds to me like the "project listing improvements" task, a top
priority that "will make finding projects easier," should improve the
way we navigate the website to find projects, and the "centralized
account management system" will make it easier to navigate the website
for the purpose of configuring our projects.
There are probably lots of other navigational improvements we could make
for better integrating the various features of the site (source code
browsing, bug tracking, wikis, etc.). But I think the items on the list
are a good start, and there are lots of other important tasks on that
list as well, like adding version control options.
