Redistributing Firefox with some changes

Kisky
Hello,

The company I work for plans to create and distribute a modified
version of Ubuntu OS, containing two different profiles.

Mozilla Firefox would be included in it, and from what I understood
from its distribution policy, there is no restriction to do this if it
remained unchanged. However, the problem is that one of these profiles
would be used in 'kiosk mode', with Firefox customized to hide
toolbars and buttons, a different home page, and all references to
Mozilla Firefox brand (both texts and icons) replaced by something
generic, like "Web browser" or something similar.

All these changes would probably be done with an addon and changing
the preferences in one profile, to avoid changing Firefox for the
other profile, where it would remain exactly as 'out of the box'. In
addition, this unchanged profile would only be accessible to people
from my company, never to the client, who would always see the
unbranded web browser.

To sum up, Firefox trademark would only be visible where it remains
unchanged (and only for people of the company), while it would
disappear from the modified and 'public' profile. Would this be OK
according to Mozilla distribution and trademark policies?

Thanks in advance!
