No, the MPL is not clearly free[1].  See


The situation, roughly, is that while the MPL is non-free, Mozilla is
being relicensed under an MPL/GPL/LGPL triple-license, and Debian gives
leeway for this type of thing to be sorted out (though this one's being
given more time than most would, I guess).


This doesn't mean that this clause is necessarily DFSG-unfree, just that
citing the MPL isn't enough to convince a lot of people.

[1] "in my opinion", "in the opinion of most of d-legal", or whatever
the current necessary line is to avoid another pointless thread on that
