No, we keep on our CVS repository only modified files and arrange them to
work for each new release of mozilla firefox.  In this way it is easier to
us to keep trace of what we modified and don't have a duplicate of files
we haven't touched.

Do you mean sync it only on upstream releases or sync it at specific

We host on gnuzilla.gnu.org a modified version for the PluginFinderService.php
file keeping there a list of free plugins.  If a plugin can't be found
there iceweasel doesn't redirect the user to the site indicated in the html
code as mozilla firefox does (most of the time the html code refers to a 
proprietary plugin) but shows an alert to the user saying there is no free 
plugin for that MIME type.
