I did not know that Firefox is packaged without the official graphics
a) because of the Firefox trademark and b) because the Mozilla
trademark policy is so strict. I thought the problem was that the ones
and zeros that comprise the official logo are/were under a non-free
license. The LWN article certainly helped.

Actually, I don't know why any distro would bother with Mozilla's
branding given their policy.
