It is unknown at this point what the new name for Debian's Firefox package will be called.

“There are a few names floating around that I'll probably choose from,” Dorland told “I'm afraid some of them might be too close to 'Firefox' to be comfortable if, for some reason, the Mozilla Corp. wished to come down even harder.

“I'll pretty much have to pick something and start the renaming by next week if I've any hope to get things ready for Etch.”

In Dorland's view, the logo and the Mozilla approvals for Debian's Firefox patches are fundamentally the same issue.
