MPL 2.0.  mozilla-central/LICENSE¹ points to another file² which
mentions that:

    <p>All of the <b>source code</b> to this product is
       available under licenses which are both
       <a href="http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/free-sw.html";>free</a> and
       <a href="http://www.opensource.org/docs/definition.php";>open source</a>.
       A URL identifying the specific source code used to create this copy can 
be found
       on the <a href="about:buildconfig">build configuration page</a>, and you 
can read
       on how to download and build the code for yourself</a>.

    <p>More specifically, most of the source code is available under the
       <a href="about:license#mpl">Mozilla Public License 2.0</a> (MPL).
       The MPL has a
       <a href="http://www.mozilla.org/MPL/2.0/FAQ.html";>FAQ</a> to help
       you understand it. The remainder of the software which is not
       under the MPL is available under one of a variety of other
       free and open source licenses. Those that require reproduction
       of the license text in the distribution are given below.
       (Note: your copy of this product may not contain code covered by one
       or more of the licenses listed here, depending on the exact product
       and version you choose.)

Admittedly, the wording is a bit weird but if you open ‘about:license’
in Mozilla-provided Firefox you can read:

        Binaries of this product have been made available to you by the
        Mozilla Project under the Mozilla Public License 2.0 (MPL). Know
        your rights.

With ‘Know your rights’ leading to a page claiming that:

        Mozilla Firefox is free and open source software, built by
        a community of thousands from all over the world. There are
        a few things you should know:

        * Firefox is made available to you under the terms of the
          Mozilla Public Licence.  This means you may use, copy and
          distribute Firefox to others. You are also welcome to modify
          the source code of Firefox as you want to meet your needs. The
          Mozilla Public Licence also gives you the right to distribute
          your modified versions.

MPL 2.0, in contrast to MPL 1.1, is compatible with GPL.

I’ll add mention of the license to the README in the directory.
