Firefox has some trademark problems.  The software is free software, but to
distribute modified versions of it you have remove the trademarked "firefox"
name and logos.

AFAIK, Skype and Second Life are not free software.  If you can download
them for no cost, they are freeware.  If every recipient could examine and
modify the source code and distribute modified versions, they would be free

BTW, for an explanation of what free software is, see:
