I understand both of Debian and Mozilla.
Mozilla make the Firefox code free, open source, that is nice. But the Firefox brand is very important, and I understand that Mozilla wants to protect it.

I also understand that Debian has their DFSG, and they cant abandon it, they must keep to it strictly.

So it seems rebranding is the only solution unless there will be a compromise somewhere. Because Mozilla wont give up the Firefox trademark and Debian wont give up DFSG.

Ubuntu got pretty strict guidelines too, don't they?
