I believe even at the time that Debian had issues with the Firefox 
brand, that Mozilla didn't really consider it an issue. Mozilla had a 
harder issues with the Debian re-branding of Firefox. The message they 
tried to send to the debian community is that there was really not such 
a big issue over this.

Nice to see its fixed as it takes a little work from the dev's to remove 
the "brand" out of software and, normally, if you have made it a big 
deal, then it all has to come out totally. Just imagine the work the 
Mageia dev's have to go through to remove the "Mandriva" mention from 
the distro before working on it. I am sure the debian devs are breathing 
a sigh of relief and shaking their heads over this one.
