Its far from a black and white thing. In some cases, upgrading to the
next release is much more reasonable compared to the amount of work you
do in maintaining a older codebase with heavy number of backports.

It's not; you cannot modify it.
Of course you can. Nobody would be able to fork it if it wasnt Free
software. The mozilla codebase is trilicensed under GPL/LGPL/MPL where
all there of them are Free software licenses. The current issues are
related to trademarks and not copyright licenses.
