@Ralf:
I see your point that adding EULA of any sort brings too much trouble for corporate, but let's face it: users aren't getting more educated and I think many of them WILL be looking for the "fox under the globe", just like they are looking for the "blue 'e' " on Windows (TM)(R)(C).

Since, as I understand it, Mozilla isn't backing down, I see two "least resistance/least collateral damage" options:
>do your own "ubuntu" branding for Icewhatever, making it obvious for Firefox users that "here's the browser". The default IceCat and IceWeasel branding seem "too different" for Firefox users to notice immediately.
>alternatively, let them choose the browser during installation. Would setting it to Icewhatever, with another option being Firefox (that would show the EULA in the subsequent step) do?
