Re: Ongoing Firefox (and Thunderbird) Trademark problems

Is the brand name 'Firefox' or 'Mozilla Firefox'? I remember that this whole

and package name?

That's not quite right. Removing the "Mozilla" prefix was one of the issues that came up in the discussion, but I don't think it was the first cause.

Is this still true or are you granting us the right to use
Mozilla Firefox/Mozilla Thunderbird/Mozilla Sunbird - that is, not modify the
sources shipped by mozilla.org in this regard?

I don't quite understand the second part of that question.

I am anticipating that, if we come to an arrangement, Debian would be shipping something called "Firefox" rather than Mozilla Firefox in the UI; we reserve "Mozilla Firefox" for stuff we ship ourselves directly. Ideally, if we were starting from scratch, the packages would also be called "firefox" rather than "mozilla-firefox", but we'd probably be OK with not renaming them if the hassle of changing was great.
