I also use wmii - because it fit my needs reasonable well. Its not
perfect, but good enough to not make me even think about writing my own

Even if wmii crashes every couple of days you only loose some layout
because so restart it and by happy :)

Maybe the awesome window manager is another possibility. I never used it

If all you need is thunderbird and firefox there is no need for WMII.
However having many windows its the fastest way to manage them because
my workflow is: goto tag, find window.

Sometimes I switch tasks so I can just keep everthing open and return
to a tag later.
