The problem is that Mozilla won't let anyone call the program "FireFox" unless 1. It includes their "official" FireFox artwork, which they will not allow to be modified. and 2. Any modifications to the code are under their control. These restrictions are not compatible with Debian's free software guidelines, although the code itself is free. Therefore, the name "FireFox" has to go. Makes sense to me.
