> firefox is no commercial product neither nor is mozilla a commercial enterprise.

Depends. The Foundation is on paper not a commercial organisation. But Mozilla Corp is:

https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/foundation/

With stuff like pocket, cliqz and a ton of money to burn from the search engine revenues it might just be non commercial in name only.

And Mozilla is open.
And Mozilla has the best interest of its users in mind. (Not sure just which mind that is?)
And Mozilla is a major support of openness & collaboration. (As they throw TB out the window. As they gut FF to the point where other projects are left high & dry.)
firefox is still free

Free, as in beer :-).
