That would be because that's not the sole purpose of a web browser, as

you think websites are free and opensource in general?
they are not, just because it's plaintext doesn't make the code free
i don't get who's business it is to care about what a software running
on a users machine does *after confirmation of the user* that he wants
his machine exactly to do that and as far fedora don't host the download
it's not Fedoras business at all
in other words: Fedora has much bigger problems than this discussion
like systemd-presets and "dhcp-compat replaces dhcp" while upgrade from
F21 to F22 *disables* dhcpd on any machine even when the unit was copied
