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..

Firefox http://secunia.com/product/4227/
Internet Explorer http://secunia.com/product/11/

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 ... !
