If you count Netscape 7 as Mozilla (it is) then Mozilla-based browsers now control about 1.7% of the Web browser market." Internet Explorer is still the number one browser with a 95% usage share but Mozilla has now overtaken Opera as the third most popular browser, behind Netscape (all versions) with 3%.

I'm not even a developer but if I was getting ready to deploy Mozilla in an enterprise environment then I'd either hide the splash screen or replace it with a simple white box with the text "We're watching. You better be doing work. No porn surfing." ;-) Seriously, the splash screen, which isn't even on by default on Linux, is easier to configure than just about any piece of the application. If you're deploying a browser in a corporation and that's the one thing holding you back then you're not likely to want Mozilla for the initial reason you stated above that a corporation would want it: "all of the sources directly available and inspectable for security flaws".
