The foundation has an ongoing deal with
Google<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Google>to make Google search the
default in the Firefox browser search bar and
> hence send it search referrals; a Firefox themed Google search site has
> also been made the default home page of Firefox. A footnote in Mozilla's
> 2006 financial report states, "Mozilla has a contract with a search engine
> provider for royalties. The contract originally expired in November 2006,
> however Google renewed the contract until November 2008 and has now renewed
> the contract through 2011.[11]<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mozilla_Foundation#cite_note-10>Approximately 85% of Mozilla’s revenue for 2006 was derived from this
> contract." This amounts to approximately US$56.8 million.[10]<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mozilla_Foundation#cite_note-2006_financial_report-9>
