It is not. I just read through their trademark license and there is nothing preventing anyone from performing an installation service (for a fee), so long as the binary files are not altered. This is a pretty clear cut legal issue, assuming Dell is offering to install Firefox from the Mozilla repositories and is not offering to actually sell the browser , they are perfectly within the limits of the license.
