this question was asked in the most recent adsense webinar. you're not allowed to explicitly draw attention to any advertisement, including the firefox referrals. however you are allowed to talk about how good firefox is, and place a firefox refferal button right next to it.

As always with AdSense, you may not directly incite users to click. However with referrals, since you have chosen to endorse a particular product, you are allowed to reasonably discuss it in your content and note that you can download or sign-up through the button.

To clarify, you cannot use language like, "click here" or "click on this button to download Firefox", or display a giant arrow drawing undue attention to your referral button.
However, in the content of your site you could provide an endorsement for the product you are choosing to refer. For example, you might say, "I recommend the Firefox browser." or "If you have a site with lots of high quality text-based content, I recommend trying AdSense." ;)
