had a hard time to select the Component - should probably 

why only 5 votes while most others (e.g. Mailnews) do more?

I would love to also vote for

most, eh?
well, let's see..
6 allow 0 votes per user. <- most is here (mode)
1 allows 3 votes per user.
5 allow 5 votes per user. <- you are here [so is median]
3 allow 10 votes per user. <- you have a skewed view of this world
2 allow some other numbers.

wtc: it's up to you. the nice thing about votes is it allows people to be silent
and feel they have input. the problem with them is that people whine when they
can't vote enough or when nothing happens.

Thanks for the clarification.
I just happened to vote in 3 areas and two out of them were with 10
--> 0) is there a URL where I can see this vote-max overview, i.e. which product
allows how many?

1) Question: Is that vote-max also tied with the threshold that lets bugs
automatically be converted from UNCONFIRMED to NEW ?

"... is it allows people to be silent and feel they have input..."
2) I hope it is not just a feeling, but that there are some procedures like the
ones outlined in the a probably a little outdated, i.e. that there is a ranking
which bugs get the most votes and that this does influence to some degree which
bug gets fixed in which priority order - or doesn't it?

"...the problem with them is that people whine when they can't vote enough..."
3) I contend that if there is transparency on your above number overview and the
reasoning behind it, this will become easier - do you think that too?

"...or when nothing happens..."
4) I guess there is some information available on what is in the pipeline for
which milestone, but overall, it appears not to give people enough of the
feeling that they know what is going on and when it is their turn (i.e. their
bug getting fixed)...

I am not familiar with the vote feature of Bugzilla.
Please go ahead and make the change if you think it's
the right thing to do.  Thanks.

Internet client technology in the world." vs - hhmmmm?

Sure, the resources are probably very limited, but some more transparency would
make bcortez probably understand what is happening and why...

Re my 0), 1) and 3) above: RFE's and might help there in parts.

How many votes do you want?

Let's say 10 like for the other two components I have voted for so far.
It would still be interesting to learn why the votes are set to a particular
value by the different component owners...

Actually more products had 5 votes than 10 votes, but whatever. Changed PSM to
10 votes. Hope that's ok.
