What sites are failing for you? It might just be a simple plugin issue.

I can't think of 1 on top of my head except for my bank online account. but that is important to me. what kind of plug-ins do they have?

I was thinking along the lines of java, flash, shockwave, quicktime, windows media, real player etc. I thought perhaps you were having those kind of problems.

One thing Opoera has that FF doesn't...The abillity to start RIGHT where you left off!...EVEN if it/Puter crashes!

10 tabs of your fav sites are there forever!...Plus the skins kick's FF's a$$!!

BTW: I have Opera...AND Firefox...I even have mozilla as a back-up!

Firefox or Opera, I don't really care which one is better, as long as they're not IE.
I'm currently using Firefox, but if people start attacking it with spyware, I'll probabbly move to Opera or Avant
