Mozilla claims that many corporations have adopted Firefox, but that they keep silent about it to maintain a good relationship with Microsoft.
Tristan Nitot, the president of Mozilla Europe, speaking at the Free and Open source Developers' European Meeting (FOSDEM) in Brussels on Sunday, said that he knows "a few companies" that have deployed the Firefox browser or Thunderbird mail client across 100,000 seats.

Gervase Markham, a Mozilla staff member who was also speaking at FOSDEM, added that there is a Fortune 100 company in the US that has deployed Thunderbird on 50,000 PCs and is paying the Mozilla Foundation to customise the email application.
