Well, often when I need a short description I often copy & paste the 2-5 first sentences of the subject from the Wikipedia article, since it should be neutral and informative. Sometimes, it may need to be modified some, and pick up some information from another paragraph and throw it together. Or you can write it all yourself, with some inspiration.

I would have written;

Mozilla Firefox is a free, open source, cross-platform web browser that follows web standards and comes with functionality such as tabbed browsing, a spell checker, incremental find, live bookmarking, a download manager, and an integrated search system that uses the user's desired search engine. It is also extensible via third-party extensions that can provide further functionality. Firefox runs on various versions of Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, and many other Unix-like operating systems. Its current stable release is version, released on April 17, 2008.

Well, there are two good cases where to avoid copy & paste;

A) Press releases (they always contain excessive annoying marketing speak)

B) Copyrighted content.

But from a website such as Wikipedia where the content are;

A) NPOV (Neutral point of view), clear, informative

B) Free content (GFDL)

Then there is a good reason to copy & paste, since it does provide a good fitting text, and it saves you time.

But if you don't monitor so many different software, you can write it yourself, and re-use the description for every release.
