I agree. I suggest to donate it to Mozilla Europe (.ro being in Europe). 
We'll redirect it to the upcoming pages in RO as soon as they are up.

It happens that he may not use firefox.no nor Mozilla.no nor any other 
top level domain.

This is stated in 
http://www.mozilla.org/foundation/trademarks/policy.html (see below)


Domain names cannot include our trademarks without asking us. This is 
because it's hard for a URL to meet the "non-confusing" requirement. We 
request that proposals for sites called www.get<product>.xx (or 
equivalent in another language) be download sites, and 
www.spread<product>.xx (or equivalent) be community advocacy portals. If 
you would like to build a Mozilla, Firefox or Thunderbird promotional 
site for your region, we encourage you to join an existing official 
localization project. Official localization projects have more 
flexibility in using our trademarks to build promotional sites.

It's fine to call your site a name like Fire*, *Fox, etc. If you want to 
call it MozSomething, you need to ask, but we are pretty likely to say Yes.
