the 3-licensed FF source code is free software, but

the binary FF released by Mozilla are not freely redestribuable
(including trademark and copyrighted stuff) so they are not free

More specifically, you can redistribute Mozilla's binaries, but you can't distribute modified versions of those binaries.

FF includes some non-free plugins (plugins with a non free software
license) like adobe reader and flash

Firefox does not include Adobe Reader of Adobe Flash (or any other non-free plugins as far as I know). But it does recommend them.

FF recommend non-free software as plug-ins and addons

FF suggest using non free formats

Which non-free formats would that be? And how is IceCat different in that respect?
