I have tried Firefox on both Linux and Mac OS X - and it is (1) dang slow and (2) stands out too much. At moment on Linux I use Konqueror and it does work perfectly fine for all what I need from web - documentation, forums, etc. GMail does seem to have higher requirements and does support all the bells'n'whistles - plain html web ui still works.
Firefox was and is primarily targeted as Windows with all consequences. In office, under Windows, all other browsers look like gimmicks in comparison.
