I'm having bad luck with Firefox as well.  Fortunately, I downloaded
MultiFirefox first:


...and then upgraded to the full version of Firefox 3.

However, I've been very unimpressed, and for some reason, Firefox 3
won't save my cookies, even though I'm explicitly instructing it to.
And with the 9,000 sites that I visit on a regular basis that requires
a login, that's simply unacceptable.  So, I've rolled back to Firefox

While we're on the subject, has anyone else had a similar issue?  I'm
using the OS X version.
