Is Your Firefox Genuine?
Until I saw this article I guess I hadn't really considered the possibility that anyone would want to issue versions of freely distributed software like FireFox. I mean why would they want to?

Do you have a genuine version of Firefox installed? Did it install a bunch of malware alongside your browser? Is Microsoft allowing this to sabotage your first impression of Firefox?

It's not the only free software that gets this treament - Paint.NET has been ripped off so frequently in the past that the author took the decision to yank the MIT open source licence and no longer publishes source code. It's now published under a Creative Common licence, so it's still free to use, but modification is no longer allowed.
