He is *still* using the wrong name. You are not allowed to use Firebird nor Thunderbird alone, it *must* be use like this: mozillaFirebird and/or mozillaThunderbird. Hey, you might end up into a legal battle one day because of this, which you will lose for sure.

Also, there should be a *HUGE* bumber sticker on the pages about mozillaFirebird and mozillaThunderbird being in fact just another refactorded mozilla browser and a refactored mail/News client. This is *JUST* another mozilla client. You get it?

Ok, the XUL has been changed, not to mention JS/XML and CSS files, but it is *STILL* the same thing, it only looks different!

Is mozilla a bad thing to use? Is it a bad taste to name it mozilla? What is this bullshit?

Remember, again, there wasn't a mozilla[whatever bird] without mozilla at the first place. Sure, in year 2010 it might ;)

Hey, why not make a 'perfect' MSIE skin copy, that might do the trick :D
