[New: openFATE 312585] Iceweasel instead of Firefox
Feature added by: Kim Leyendecker (openLHAG)

Feature #312585, revision 1
Title: Iceweasel instead of Firefox

openSUSE Distribution: Unconfirmed
Priority
Requester: Important

Requested by: Kim Leyendecker (openlhag)
Partner organization: openSUSE.org

Description:
With the new scheme of version numbers at Mozilla (called by myself "the idiot
scheme") and the result, that the add-on-developers need to do a major-port
every 3-6 months, I think it´s necessary to drop Firefox and set Iceweasel
instead as default.



Use Case:
The normal firefox-user will get a more stable ff-release

The user will get more add-ons because the Iceweasel is still on the 3.6.x
firefox base which gets support.

Business case (Partner benefit):
openSUSE.org: It would be easier for us to garantee a full time support for ff
during the whole release cycle of openSUSE 12.1
