You may have been confused by now with the statement because of the name, "Firefox" suggests a fox, right? No, but wait that's not true, the English word for Red Panda is Firefox.


There is present a Red Panda in the logo of Firefox, not any fox.

The Chinese name for red panda is “hunho” which translated in English means firefox. This is due to their color and outer physical similarity to foxes that is why Mozilla's web browser “Firefox” is named after the red panda.


Red panda quite looks like a fox though, that makes the logo quite confusing but for reference, this is a Red Panda -

    1. Exactly, mostly people don't know about red pandas and thus confuse the firefox's logo to be a fox!

      And similarities between both makes it more obviously confusing that the logo consists of a fox and even the name thought, "Firefox" the name itself misguides one's prudence as the common sense tells us it to be a fox just because that "fox" is added to it.

      But the English word for a Red Panda is - Firefox!
