AFAIK no but I'm not sure.

Regarding Firefox, only the sources are free software, the precompiled
program is not.

Another problem of Mozilla Firefox is that it suggests the installation
of non free software via plugins (e.g. Adobe Flash and so on).

Another one is that the name and logo are not released under a free license.

Those are the reasons (please Giuseppe correct me if I'm wrong) why the
Gnuzilla project was born.

The first program the Gnuzilla community is working on is called GNU
IceCat and it is a free software replacement of Mozilla Firefox.

Sorry for the long email but I took this occasion to summarize the goals
of the project to the new and old ones.

Please stop using gmail if you can but ask me in a private email and not
on the list. :)
