Trade marks protect against use not only of identical marks, but also
of similar marks where there is a risk of confusion. So Firefux would
almost certainly infringe Mozilla's trade mark rights in Firefox.

But I appreciate that in this specific case there was a lot more going
on, with copyright aspects as well.
