may have been the original idea, but it's not the idea now - "Mozilla Browser" is going to be used everywhere. "Firebird" will be used officially only from now until the 1.4 release, after that it'll only be an unofficial codename thing, like "Buffy" for the next Netscape release, or "Longhorn" for the next version of Windows.

From the branding document: "4. Use the names "Mozilla Browser" and "Mozilla Mail" to describe the Firebird and Thunderbird projects after the 1.4 release.

Also, this branding should be found throughout the projects if possible instead of referring to the Firebird and Thunderbird names directly. Project names are transitory. As long as we have both a mail and browser project, we should be using the mozilla brand and reinforcing it whenever we get the chance. [...] Product Naming in resources, executables and on the desktop

The Mozilla Browser and Mail programs should try to stick to the mozilla product name whenever possible, even in resource names. For example, registry keys would use a key name that includes "MozillaBrowser" or "Mozilla/Browser." For an executable you might use MozillaBrowser, mozilla-browser, mozbrwsr.exe or mozilla-browser.exe"
