Dear Jerry,

as CEO of FreeBSD Multinational Corporation Incorporated, please allow 
me to personally apologise for this unforgiveable lapse by our 'Keep 
FreeBSD 100% Firefox-Compatible' Department; trust me, heads will roll.

Unfortunately, I'm so high up in the hierarchy that I'm rarely familiar 
with the names of those minions down on the 13th floor hired to do the 
actual programming.  It would be most helpful if you could apportion 
blame directly to those individual/s responsible; otherwise I'll have to 
work through layers of department heads, middle management, team leaders 
and such, and you know how they can close ranks in a crisis.  It may 
take some time, but rest assured we'll catch and fire him, her or them!

Thank you for your patience during our investigation of your complaint.  
If still dissatisfied, of course I shall personally authorise the full 
refund of your purchase price.

Best of luck, Ian
