Update: According to PS3Center.net, Mozilla responded and denied the rumor, to quote: "They replied with the following: Nope - not sure how that rumor got started but it's been keeping us busy all day :)"
According to a rumor from E-mpire.com (linked above), Sony is in talks with Mozilla over the possibility of porting FireFox over to the PS3.
While this sounds promising, obviously there will be numerous security issues to address if this browser finds its way onto the PS3.
To quote: "We recently received a tip from a source very close to Sony who says that they have been in talks with Mozilla lately about possibly porting Firefox over to the PS3.
That said, our source made sure to point out that they were unsure if any deal had actually been reached at this point, but it is great news none the less considering the complaints Sony has been getting about the lack of reliability with their current built in PS3 web browser.
Throwing Firefox into the mix would give PS3 the ultimate advantage when it came to internet functionality."
