*Sigh* Once again, no.
If they had, they'd have been in breach of the license. You can't
"tweak [OSS] enough to make it proprietory" unless it's BSD licensed.
Which nothing on the Mozilla project was/is.
You're possibly thinking of the WebCore HTML rendering engine that
AppleMail uses, derived from Konqueror's khtml engine. WebCore is
therefore also OSS, not proprietory - it's released under the GNU LGPL.
