[Bug 418203] Re: "Mozilla Firefox for Ubuntu canonical - 1.0" doesn't make sense

This "canonical - 1.0" string comes from
/usr/lib/firefox/distribution/distribution.ini. See

And this is where these fields are used for the about dialog:

This could easily be patched by changing the value of
distroIdField.hidden to true in https://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-

But as pointed out by Chris, this decision is better left for upstream.
Please file a bug at
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/enter_bug.cgi#h=dupes%7CFirefox to request
for this field to be hidden by default, or to provide distributors with
a preference to hide it.
