No, because "free software" has a specific meaning, and these restrictions no longer fit it.
Mozilla firefox is no more free software.

What part of the definition of free software doesn't allow this restriction?
The restriction on the software we're talking about is this: You can't distribute any derivative of this software under the name "Firefox" without Mozilla's permission.
For all the value I see in free software, I don't see any in free naming.
