Firefox sucks.

Mozilla suite is the only way to go.

Mozilla doesn't use that much space.. it depends on the theme, you're using :)
There's also the Google searchbar for Mozilla, neat thing. If you don't need the whole package, Firefox is definitely the first choice.
What will happen next? You never know.

Because people can be just as snobby about Navigator as they can with any other browser.

Mozilla has all the extra menus at the top, and no way to move the personal toolbar folder up there. Even using micromozilla as my theme, the page space is less than with firefox.

I started using Mozilla three days ago after seeing a post about it on one of my groups. I love it! Then, the poster corrected themselves and said they use Fire Fox so I downloaded that today and it just sucks! Freeezes, unstable bookmarks (only way I know how to say it). I'm back to Mozilla.
I hope you dandce and do it like no one's watching.

Boy, I now feel better that most of you like Mozilla better than FireFox. I thought I was the only one when everyone kept saying Firefox...

What should you choose? Definitely Mozilla.

Mozilla has been the longest-developed Mozilla product (naturally), and in my opinion has the most features.

As someone who has not tried FireFox, I cannot say much on how it performs, other than it does not have built in Composer. Can it use the MozillaDev XUL-based card games? Will its next name be FireFly?

I would say the Mozilla Suite (this week). Add the Qute theme and Multizilla and you have the perfect tool.
Then again - I frequently switch back and forth from Thunderbird/Firefox.

Mozilla looks more stable to me(less cases of disappearing bookmarks etc.) and there are also more features, like been able to clean your URL-history seperate from the rest, profile switching etc.
There are also better extensions for it (compare prefbuttons to pref-toolbar, not to mention multizilla) although thats shifting a bit.
It looks like you could make an objective judgemant to say that mozilla is better.
That said firefox is still in development, however ben goodger said that firefox was aimed at the averidge IE-user which isn't the averidge mozilla-user I think.

With Mozilla.org's decision to split the application, I'm suprised that every time this question gets asked, `The Suite' seems to be the favourite.
Now, this survey is a little biased... this is the Mozilla General Forum.
I guess that the intended users for Firefox and Thunderbird are not hanging around in these forums.
But developors and hobbyists are, and these are the ones that appreciate all the features.

My post saying that Mozilla also has autofill was directed at the poster that thought autofill was only on FireFox.
