anyway although i and several staff members have explained that firefox is free and opensource but as we are a member of FAST (http://www.fast.org.uk/) he is very weary about installing it network wide, have there been any releases or anything that i can show him (apart from mozilla sites of course!) that will prove to him about licences, a word from FAST themselves on the program would be perfect.
thanks a lot for your help
The MPL is considered by gnu.org to be a free license but incompatible with the GPL [gnu.org]. However, the license is almost certainly wholly appropriate in your case - as a Windows shop, you are not using GPL software anyway.
There are few restrictions on redistribution or installations, and as you would not be looking to significantly alter or re-use the code, there should be no issues blocking its use.
