the name itself is also copyrighted: "firefox"

I would go for iceweasel immediately. Firefox is by far the best
browser anyway; the only thing you have to do is to take away the
non-free things of it. If you do it an figure out yet a new name and
logo, you're going to confuse the community.

Iceweasel will be per default in future realses of debian anyway and
since gNewSense is debian-based I would not doubt even a second.
You've got the extensions, which are -at least for me- the reason to
use firefox.

When I learnt the mozilla CORPORATION issue I spent some days trying
this and that browser (epiphany, galeon, konqueror etc) and I must say
they are far away from firefox (sorry, iceweasel)

Let's not confuse the community and go for iceweasel (and the logo I
posted in the first email of this thread is nice :) )

Why not include GNU Iceweasel (apart from the effort required to
package & maintain?)
