Firefox – Could it BE any more un-secure?

In what I would call a case of a victim of their own success it appears that Firefox is now the most un-secure web browser on the market. A report recently done by Secunia shows that Firefox have over 3 times more security vulnerabilities than IE. Interestingly that this report includes IE 5,6, & 7 which means they are still including code that was written over 10 years ago.

In any case i think Firefox authors might be learning the hard way how to write secure code ( a lesson that Microsoft has already learnt years ago ) and might be struggling writing a product that is becoming an ever increasing target for hackers.
