while it was a fairly entertaining movie, it was definitely not Clint Eastwoods best work

Spend the next hour surfing porn sites...at the end of it, you won't have any spyware, malware, redirected home pages, or any other shit you don't want. And no pop ups either. It puts the FUN back in the internet

All of the above plus under "tools" it gives you the option to "clear all" if you like with a single button. All site history, all download history, all temp internet files, all cache, all cookies...everything. Or you can just clear what you want, or nothing.

I haven't haven't seen a single popup since I started using it months ago.

Firefox has holes, just like every other piece of software, but like the Mac OS, nobody cares because not enough people use it to make a big impact. That and it's open source, which most hackers and virus writers support.

Yes, by design it doesn't support ActiveX because of security issues.

There will be minor exploits that are discovered in Firefox but it does not have the hooks into the O/S that MS IE has. As an application it simply doesn't have the authority to exec certain functions that makes IE a security risk.
