It really depends on the languages you are familiar with. Bugzilla uses
Perl, Firefox and Thunderbird use C/C++/JS/....

I'm not sure that working on a project you know nothing about is really
useful. If you have no interest in bug tracking systems, don't work on
Bugzilla; if you have no interest in email clients, don't work on
Thunderbird, etc... I don't think you can improve your programming
skills without some minimal interest to the project you are
contributing. So besides the languages you are familiar with, your 2nd
question should be: what are you interested in? Web browsers, email
clients, bug tracking systems?
