Dell Charging £16 for Firefox Installation

Apparently, Dell is charging £16 for Firefox installation on newly purchased computers. As reported by The Register, Mozilla is now investigating the case where Dell offers “Mozilla Firefox Web Browser Installation” service for £16 (around $27).

It is important to mention here that the Firefox is a free and open source product, and anyone can download and install it on supported platforms from Mozilla’s website. Such kind of paid instillation service violates Mozilla’s licensing terms.
