Also Firefox is open source.
An open-source software license is a statement that anyone
is free to use your source code in whatever way they want.
Open source rights:
     A user can create and distribute copies of the source code;
     A user can obtain a program’s source code;
     A user can modify the source code.
Mozilla open-source licenses;
      Firefox, Thunderbird  triple-licensed MPL/LGPL/GPL

As such your bullshit is bullshit. If I want to add to FF's
configuration I can and Mozilla has no right to stop me.

That's a red herring.  Of course you can do a lot of things with the
source code, but the bugs are about how the binaries distributed by
Mozilla behave.

And why is this a red herring? It just points out a fact. Neither you nor Walt have shown how this is a bug. If I can mess with the source code I can also add files.
