Firefox out of date --> We are still finishing the rebuild of the 9.x
PBI's and the www category is at the end. Once we get there, all the web
browsers should be updated to the latest versions.

Bluetooth support --> A bluetooth configuration/setup utility is in the
works here, and it will probably be released with PCBSD 9.1

Wine .exe files --> I will look into the Wine PBI and see why it is not
registering the mime types and get back to you once it has been fixed.
