Hello Scott,

Thank you for the bug report, I can confirm this on Edgy and as it probably hasn't changed much in Feisty I am going to flag it as confirmed. As packages.ubuntu.com it should be named just 'firefox'.

Hopefully it should be repackaged when Mr Sack gets around to it.

Thanks again, Alex.
