Showing ads does not make Firefox nonfree. The only reason we should
completely remove Firefox from Fedora is if it starts shipping nonfree
or patent-encumbered code -- like the Cisco binary that just recently
got removed, or that EME module from Adobe that they're planning to
include -- in such a way that is difficult or impossible to strip out.
There is no EME module. There is EME, which is what Firefox will ship (and it's of
course open source) and the CDM module, which will be user's choice to install it or
not (like Adobe Flash today).
