Description of problem:

using a 3rd party build of Firefox with Mozilla branding and icons - Mozilla support forum site admin claims it is not kosher - seems unlikely but reporting a 'bug' here so Fedora project can run it down to be sure

from the Mozilla Firefox support forum...


Where are you getting Firefox 64-bit builds from? I haven't seen any from Mozilla.
If you are using a 3rd party build or 'Community build' {they aren't allowed to use official Firefox branding and icons - they can call it Minefield or Shiretoko and use those icon packs - pre-release code names for the Trunk/Branch builds}, you need to find the support forum for that specific build. This forum is for "official" Firefox builds.
AFAIK, 64-bit Flash builds for Linux have only become available recently, an alpha version was released 12.16.08 .


now... my Firefox is what came with my x86_64 distro, plus any updates, and shows from Help->About Mozilla Firefox...
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv: Gecko/2009020410 Fedora/3.0.6-1.fc10 Firefox/3.0.6
and it comes complete with links to the Mozilla webpages
do we have a trademark problem or the Mozilla site admin have it wrong?

They are almost correct.  The trademark guidelines stipulate that permission must be granted by Mozilla in order to use the trademarks, which we have.
