I am just wondering what is the proper name would be used in the mozillazine main page?

As at today (2003.5.6), it shows 'px0.5' a the releases and 'Fb' for forum name and Nightlies. This might cause confusion to the 1st time visitors.

According to the new 'Mozilla Branding Strategy' dated April 25th:

Quote Begin--- 3. When referring to Thunderbird or Firebird before or during the 1.4 release cycle, make sure to use the project name with Mozilla pre-pended as "Mozilla Thunderbird" or "Mozilla Firebird" instead of Mozilla alone or Firebird/Thunderbird alone.

4. Use the names "Mozilla Browser" and "Mozilla Mail" to describe the Firebird and Thunderbird projects after the 1.4 release. Quote ended------

As Mozilla 1.5 is coming very soon, why we should not use "MF" and "MT" during Mozilla 1.4 development cycle or use "MB" or "MM" directly?
