1.1.1. 1. favorite feature of Firefox is the wide variety of add-ons

1.2. Cons

1.2.1. 1.The main disadvantage of Firefox® is compatibility. Some websites do not show properly in Firefox®, and require you to view them with IE. This includes pages with ActiveX and VBScript, both of which are not supported by Firefox®.

1.2.2. 2.Firefox® takes a lot of memory to run. Even with an up-to-date computer, you may find that it becomes hard to run Firefox along with a couple of programs. Firefox® also tends to freeze and close when too many tabs are open simultaneously, which is why Firefox® invested heavily in creating the recovery memory feature.
