Can I just correct a misunderstanding here: Firefox does not have a
EULA, and there is no need to sign anything to use it. The builds you
can download from www.mozilla.org are fully free software under the MPL 2.

[It is true that we retain trademark control over use of the Firefox
logo, which is probably why Iceweasel still exists - although, not being
involved in that project, I couldn't say for definite.]
