What the Mozilla Foundation should do, IMHO, is certify Canonical to be
able to add security patches to the browser and push the change.  The
certification would be defined by a certain set of rules.  In other
words, Canonical would be bound to only do security or bug fix updates
and not feature additions or subtractions.  This way they could still
call it Firefox and even use the logo.  Would be a smart move on
Mozilla's part.  Keep the brand recognition including logo.
