With a current 1.8 tbird Nightly, Thunderbird is only called "Thunderbird" and not "Mozilla Thunderbird" like on Linux and Windows.

It seems to be possible to add a vendor name, like VMware Fusion is called "VMware Fusion".

Where are you seeing just "Thunderbird" being displayed in comparison to the Linux & Windows builds - everywhere?

It says "Thunderbird" in the mac app menu (did that in 1.5 as well). In the about menuitem it says "About Mozilla Thunderbird" - I think that's one of the few (if only) places it says "Mozilla Thunderbird". I think it always have been like this.

"If you’ve specified a short name (see “The Application Menu Title”), use it in the About menu item; use the full application name in the About window."

To the validity of this bug depends on where exactly you see it...

Magnus, so is the bug still valid?
No I don't think so. The short name should be used in the application menu on mac.
