The back button and URL bar aren't Mozilla concepts. They were in Mosaic back before Netscape Communications was ever founded and before JWZ coined the name "Mozilla" in 1994. Netscape ripped them off just as much as Microsoft did - but I don't see why that would be any issue. They are both good (and obvious) ideas and I'm sure 1000 other software used similar things before that (file managers for example).
