Indeed.  But the tone of the messge you are proposing here sounds much
different than the one that was actually sent in this case.  At least to
me (a non-native speaker), the above message seems much more friendly
than the one that was sent in the firefox case.  
I think that's actually pretty important for messages like these: let
the use know that their efforts are very much appreciated and explain
why it's (nearly) impossible to handle all the bugs manually.

Best regards,

Kind regards,
