has someone looked into Pale Moon browser before?

the binary distribution part and their really unfortunate

However this
seems to indicate that it would be just fine with official branding disabled.

But mostly I'm interested in the thought experiment of what
could be altered to make it compatible to the GNU FSDG at runtime.
The most obvious part is: their default homepage of the web browser

They exclude Google from the default search engines and default to

You can't use the mozilla addon store with it unless you point it to
it directly (not via browser internals), but they link to it in the
"about:addons" page as a choice between "Pale Moon Addons Site" and
"Mozilla Addons Site". Both open as websites, not in-browser mode.
Mozilla could be patched away.
