I think that what this shows is that the Firefox add-ons system is an open door to unknown problems.
What's the use of having a fast and stable browser if you allow code from anyone to work attached it?
Sure, they can say that this is not a problem with Firefox, it's a Microsoft problem (like the Quicktime problem is an Apple problem), but the problem is starting to look somewhat similar to the ActiveX problem with Internet Explorer, a good idea that may go terribly wrong.

I'm glad I recently switched from Firefox to Google Chrome.
If only I liked Macs, but I have a real problem with the whole non compatibility issue.
Just a random thought after reading so many posters hating their OS... Me? Every computer in house runs XP Pro with no problems.
