Interesting, only the MPL is mentioned on:
http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/about/licensing.html
but digging deeper I find:
http://www.mozilla.org/MPL/relicensing-faq.html
happy days indeed.

Yuck, murky waters.  I figured if an icon/logo was included within GPL
sources, and the GPL allows for unrestricted modification/redistribution,
we were golden.  Note, we're not talking about modifying the *trademarked*
item in this case (which I would agree not a good idea), only
using/displaying it.
