Is the Firefox project fully and technically a non-profit? If so, perhaps
approaching them, given their financial windfall, to see about placing a
simple "You can use [HTML link to download Firefox] to edit Wikipedia" link
in the global footer in exchange for a pledge of annual contributions in x
amount? Such a link could be exempt from the nofollow.

If they're a non-profit, this could be a good thing. Additional revenue for
free for WP, and additional traffic (substantial) for Firefox.
