Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: firefox

The orig.tar.gz's of Mozilla products have some binary-only files
(Windows DLLs and MacOS) without accompanying source code. Thus they do
not fulfill the 'preferred form of modification' requirements of
GPL/MPL. They either need to be removed, accompanied by source, or
distributed under another license (such as BSD).
