Firefox is available under a disjunctive tri-licensing scheme [1]:
The Mozilla Public License, version 1.1 or later (MPL)
The GNU General Public License, version 2 or later (GPL)
The GNU Lesser General Public License, version 2.1 or later (LGPL)

I think Ruben's question is more of: If you take Firefox under the GPL, does 
the "you can't charge for unmodified binaries" constitute a "further 
restriction" under the GPL?
