The application name in the window titlebar should say "Mozilla Testing Build", "Mozilla Test Platform", or something similar (preferably the same terminology as on the mozilla.org webpages: see Bug #143960). Consistently referring to builds in this way would make it clear that they are meant for testing. It has become clear that the disclaimers in the Download Mozilla box, the releases page, and the README are not enough. People tend to skim them...the people whose expectations of end-user support we are trying to discourage are the same people who ignore READMEs entirely. However, it would be hard to ignore the name. It would also make it easier to discriminate between Mozilla (the code) and Mozilla Testing Builds (the builds)--calling both Mozilla causes quite a bit of confusion, leading to nasty flamewars about whether Mozilla is or is not end-user software.
To mozilla.org product to make a policy decision.

The benefit is a reduction in the number and severity of headaches among developers and testers trying to use the n.p.m.* newsgroups.
