Debian and its clones "The developers behind the Debian Linux distribution are preparing for the upcoming release of Debian 5, which is codenamed Lenny. The decision to move forward with the release follows a contentious vote over whether to permit the inclusion of binary blobs in the new version of the distribution. Consensus coalesced around a controversial proposal to "assume blobs comply with the GPL unless proven otherwise."

They were asked by the Mozilla community to change the name as it's part of the Firefox license. If you build Firefox from source you have to name it otherwise. Last time I've seen Gentoo Firefox build, it was called Bon Echo (code name for beta of firefox builds). It's the same principle for Thunderbird btw.
