You're mixing terms.
The FSF doesn't class *anything* as "proper open source" because they object to the term "open source" in the first place. They prefer "free software".
Not only that, but the FSF *do* class the MPL as a true free software license (see <http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/license-list.html> ), although they have some minor practical issues with it (which doesn't really mean anything - they have some practical issues with virtually every license except the GPL, but they still endorse their use in some situations)
