Firefoxed

Things continue to look not so great with Firefox.


Many of the major websites are not yet fully Mozilla Firefox compatible. What's more, Orkut (which is loosely associated with Google) doesn't support Firefox

Some major problems that you encounter

- Text boxes are skewed

- New windows/tabs don't open as expected

- Ctrl + middle click (new tab) doesn't work


I understand, the websites to be careful to follow generic coding standards, but couldn't Firefox guys ensure that everything that runs of IE, runs the same way on Firefox

And now there is security hole

Securnia stated that the Firefox security problem was that “IFRAME” JavaScript URLs were not properly protected from being executed in context of another URL in the history list. This could have been exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user’s browser session in context of an arbitrary site.

Not that, I am giving up Firefox use because of all this. I still believe, it is a notch above IE
