Firefox Criticism (and Poll)

My choice is missing from your poll: I'm sticking with Mozilla.

My major criticism of Firefox is that it's a backwards step from the Mozilla browser – by taking all the glory and the development resource, its preventing the even better browser that Mozilla is from getting its true recognition.

I find it most annoying when new extensions are produced that are Firefox only – simply because the developer is using that, and has not bothered to write an install that also allows it to be installed in Mozilla.

Problems in Firefox compared to Mozilla are:
- missing the site navigation bar
- missing the ability to search from the address box, not a separate search box
- the pop-up blocker is TOO aggresive, blocking popups produced by my bookmarks

I don't like how .swf files with drag don't work right with firefox.

For example:
