If you really want to help Firefox succeed, file a bug on https://webcompat.com/ when you find a broken website. Don't just switch back to Chrome; let Mozilla know there's a problem so they can try to fix it.
When browsers lose market share, they fall into the "compatibility death spiral." Sites don't bother to test, they break, and users flee to the browser that "just works." Mozilla is fighting this battle every day, and it just got harder.
11-year-old Firefox bug exploited by malicious parties results in an HTTP authentication loop:
– malicious sites try to force FF users to install extensions
– also misused for tech support scams, ad farms, pages that push users to buy fake gift cards, or sites that offer malware-laced software updates
– most users must kill their FF process to escape
