Mozilla is not stealing the Firebird name. (The product is actually Mozilla Firebird, but none of that matters anyway--here's why.) "Mozilla Firebird" is just the internal code name, like Seamonkey (which most people haven't heard of) is the name for the current Mozilla app suite. It will, when released, be called Mozilla Browser, which I think is a bit boring (how about Mozilla Navigator?), but certainly better.
So, why'd they change from "Phoenix" in the first place if an internal name was all it'd ever be? Well, they didn't know that until the new roadmap was unveiled a few months ago. :-)
