Firefox 3 forcing you to agree to a EULA redux -- People suddenly care now that Ubuntu will display it in compliance with Mozilla

I was browsing Slashdot earlier today and came across an article regarding Mozilla's forced acceptance of a non-free EULA via a dialog box that restricts you from using the software until you agree to their terms.

I started complaining about this a few months ago when it initially happened to me after compiling the first release candidate of Firefox 3 and unfortunately only a few people seemed to care.

It is sort of a shame that more people are only starting to complain now that they have discovered that Ubuntu will be forcing the EULA on their copies in order to continue to use the Firefox name as per Mozilla's demands.

I would personally recommend that people remove Firefox and move over to a truly free web browser such as GNU IceCat 3.
