Mozilla has accepted Microsoft's offer of help in porting Firefox to Vista, but some issues still need to be ironed out

Mozilla has accepted Microsoft's offer of help towards ensuring interoperability between Firefox and the upcoming Vista operating system.

Microsoft's offer to help came on Saturday when the director of the company's open source lab, Sam Ramji, posted an open letter to a newsgroup used by Mozilla developers. Microsoft offered to open up a new open source facility at its headquarters in Redmond to Mozilla software engineers, including giving them one-on-one time with Microsoft people. The offer includes help with the Thunderbird email client.

In reply, Mike Beltzner, a "phenomenologist" for Mozilla and the company's spokesman on this issue, said: "Yes, we'd definitely be interested in getting some one-to-one support".
