That is one of the reasons why net-www/firebird would be a bad choice.
Currently, it is ambigious which one would be chosen.

Indeed, capitialisation is frowned upon for a package name in portage. I
support it being called mozilla-firebird or even mozilla-browser as it
will be renamed to after 1.4[1]. However, I'm not the maintainer of
phoenix or mozilla, so it is ultimately up to them.

I have no comment about -bin and -cvs. I don't personally use phoenix so
I'm not sure why we have those compared with the regular source release.



"When referring to Thunderbird or Firebird before or during the 1.4
release cycle, make sure to use the project name with Mozilla pre-pended
as "Mozilla Thunderbird" or "Mozilla Firebird" instead of Mozilla alone
or Firebird/Thunderbird alone. ... Use the names "Mozilla Browser" and
"Mozilla Mail" to describe the Firebird and Thunderbird projects after
the 1.4 release."
