FireFox is not even listed as a supported Browser!

Re: "You should be able to add firefox"

I just tried with the Live CD and FireFox was not listed as an application that could be installed (as a supported application supported by the Kubuntu listed internet options... instead it seems you have to get FireFox via a more confusing and maybe unsupported repository!

Not having FireFox on the default install just does not make business sense. To a high school hacker it might be cool to ignor FireFox, but hey it's one of the apps that is winning folks away from Microsoft... it should be part of the default install (and at least listed in the level of apps to be installed that is supported by Kubuntu development, today it is not on the list even)!
