Thanks for the report. Confirming, needs forwarded upstream.

** Changed in: firefox (Ubuntu)
       Status: New => Confirmed

** Description changed:

  Binary package hint: firefox
  Ubuntu version: Hardy alpha 5
  Package: firefox-3.0
  Package version: 3.0~b3+nobinonly-0ubuntu2
  Steps to reproduce:
  1. Boot from Hardy Heron alpha 5 live CD.
  2. From the Applications menu, select Internet > Firefox 3 Web Browser.
  3. Type "about:" in the URL bar and press return.
  Expected result:
  Firefox reports itself as "version 3.0b3" in both the version string laid over the logo and in the build identifier
  Actual result:
  Firefox shows "version 1.9b3" overlaid on the logo, while correctly reporting itself as "... Firefox/3.0b3" in the build identifier. 
  The contents of Firefox's about page can be found in the soon-to-be
  attached PDF.
+ The version from Help > About is not affected; it shows 3.0b3 correctly.

** Also affects: firefox
   Importance: Undecided
       Status: New
