ps. firefox sucks. it easts memory, won't display half the pages out there, deletes bookmarks, and it's flaming.
Just download the latest IE from the MS site, IE hasn't been uninstallable for several versions now.
Firefox displays about 99% of pages I visit as well or even BETTER than IE. For example, my school's website is designed to work in all modern browsers, yet the hover and focus css attributes for input boxes aren't applied in IE.
I've never lost a bookmark in any version of Mozilla, Firebird or Firefox, nor have I ever felt that my memory situation was detrimented by any Mozilla product. I'm not sure how to respond to your last point: Is it too gay or too hot for you to use? I'm not telling you what browser to use, that's your choice. I just don't like to see inaccurate or false information being spread. If you'd care to detail how you lost your bookmarks and/or which sites fail to work, and it can be reproduced by others, then it can be filed as a bug and possibly be fixed.
If you provide examples of pages that won't work with Firefox, they can be forwarded to a team of people that check the page to see if it's problem with Firefox being broken, or a lazy website author who only creates pages to work with a single (albeit popular) browser. Even if you don't use firefox, it's to everyone's benefit to have standards-based webpages that can be displayed in any browser. You may find one day that you need information from a certain page, and you only have access to a) a mac or unix computer b)a pda c)some other web capable device that doesn't use IE. If the website is made to only work with IE, you are not going to be happy in that case.
