User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050317 Firefox/1.0.2
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050317 Firefox/1.0.2

After bug 241676 was closed, it was suggested that a terminology change for the
whole application should be considered.  I am suggesting that 'Location' should
become 'Address' in all cases throughout Firefox (potentially the other apps
too).  Examples of this would include the 'Location Bar' and 'copy link location'.

Is this one done?

Still not done.

For example, in the about:preferences#privacy page, the term "Location Bar" is used, whereas in what I call the Address Bar, the text before you type anything says "Search or enter address".

I am sure like many others, the term used is not as important as being consistent.

Can someone at Mozilla decide, please?

My interest in this is that I am writing a config guide to Firefox for my missus... and she's already confused!
