Er, it's a wiki. Add it.
The code for the DRM module Firefox uses is not part of the Firefox build system, but is downloaded at runtime. This can be done whether it's a Firefox built by Mozilla or not. So the DRM question has no bearing on whether you can call your version Firefox or not.
This series of blog posts: http://blog.gerv.net/2010/01/p... explains why Mozilla doesn't let just anyone call their modified version "Firefox".
The bug is unfixed for philosophical reasons, not because it's hard to fix. The Bugzilla developers feel history should be immutable.
And there has been no rewrite into another language since that bug was filed; Bugzilla as released by Mozilla has always been in Perl.
There was no issue with the Bugzilla software here; the problem was that a user reused their password on another site, which suffered a breach.

I know you're just a random slashdot poster, and I really shouldn't expect any better, but would it hurt you to look at the list of Document Foundation (the Org behind LibreOffice) and look at the list of supporters:
"Chris DiBona, Open Source Programs Manager at Google, Inc., has commented: "The creation of The Document Foundation is a great step forward in encouraging further development of open source office suites. Having a level playing field for all contributors is fundamental in creating a broad and active community around an open source software project. Google is proud to be a supporter of The Document Foundation and participate in the project".
Hint - supporters mean we fund them. I represent Google on the Board of Directors, and yes, nagging them about getting a full Android port is something I do *every* meeting.
I now return you to your regularly scheduled slashdot poster 2-minute-hate on "Big Corporations".
This, this, a thousand times this.
You can look at the source code all you like, but unless you can *use* that source code to build your own binaries and redistribute them, then that means absolutely nothing in terms of security.
The products you buy off the shelf may or may not have any relation to the code you looked at.
That's why Free Software is so important for security-sensitive applications. Not only do you get to look, you get to modify it and redistribute.

Another "feature" brought to you by the poisonous gift of software patents.
Dongle vendors don't want the potential of getting Microsoft knocking on their door asking for royalties by including (or even just turning on) the CIFS client in the Linux kernel they all ship.
Thanks Microsoft ! Great job on promoting SMB technology !
Fuckers (not the Microsoft engineers, with whom I have a *great* relationship - I mean Microsoft legal).
