Ubuntu Documentation

I'm not going to launch into a big tirade about how far Linux has to go, but I saw this intro to a help document:
"Music Player is an ID3 organised, music library and player for your MP3, FLAC or Ogg/Vorbis Music Files"
For a start, my copy of the Ubuntu Live CD can't even play MP3 Files. I guess an equivalent would be the introduction to Firefox Help being:
"Firefox is a Web Browser which can access your HTML files and remote URLs using the Hypertext Transfer Protocol"
You get the idea...

Firefox Google Toolbar sans 'Browse By Name'

I was having a look at the Firefox Google Toolbar via Asa and notice it lacks the excellent Browse by Name feature of the Internet Explorer version. Someone needs to point them at Jesse's blog post and that someone may as well be me!

'Google to buy Firefox?' Impossible!

Just reading some unfounded speculation over on Spread Firefox, 'Google to buy Firefox?'
Perhaps I'm wrong but I was under the impression that buying an open source project is impossible, what would a company buy exactly? Mozilla Foundation doesn't 'own' the Firefox source code. Even a project under corporate stewardship such as Helix Player can't really claimed to be 'owned' by RealNetworks even if it decides what gets in to the product.
