Never Call It "Firebird"

Mozilla Firebird has been released, as if you have not heard. I was reading through the Mozilla Branding document that outlines the new names, the reasons, and the rules.

Rule Three: “When referring to Thunderbird or Firebird … 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.”

The document does not keep its own rules.

On just the next line: “our primary development on the Firebird and Thunderbird projects”

Sorry, it seems funny to me at this hour of the night. :)
