Why doesn't Firefox's setup module have a digital signature?

I did not notice any secure connection indicator when downloading Firefox 3.6.13 from a Denmark mirror site. This was after restarting the download step multiple times and seeing only East European sites. I'm in the Western part of USA and I didn't see any mirror sites one would expect from something the size of Mozilla.org.

 Then when I started executing the setup module, I was also warned that the module did not have a digital signature.
 I know it would be somewhat of a long shot if download site was hijacked, but I aborted the Firefox installation hoping that I might receive a practical explanation for the less than expected security indicators.
