Revenue growth last year was just over half that of the 34% increase Mozilla touted for 2009. This was the second annual report in a row that Mozilla did not disclose the individual amounts it received from its search partners.

Instead, in a FAQ tied to the report, Mozilla repeated nearly word for word a line it used last year: “The majority of Mozilla’s revenue continues to be generated from the search functionality included in our Mozilla’s Firefox product through all major search partners including Google, Bing, Yahoo, Yandex, Amazon, eBay and others.”
