Well ... nobody says that there exists a perfectly secure browser. But that does not mean that just because firefox has had bugs, its as insecure as Internet Explorer..

Internet Explorer

from 03 to 05, out of only 22 advisories for firefox 14% are unpatched compared to 28% out of 69 vulnerabilties unpatched for internet explorer during the same period.

For firefox 23% very highly critical and 0% extremely critical, compared to 29% highly critical and 14% extremely critical in Internet Explorer.

Gets the Facts ... !
