MS IE has a lot of bugs - sadly, most complex software products today do also. IE's bugs are very often security related, though, which is one of the reasons I would like to replace it.

The problem with the Mozilla is different: there is a set of long-standing bugs related to "plays nice on corporate networks". Some of them have 4-digit bugzilla numbers, which I have to think means they have been around for a while. When you read through the threads of those bugs, you find that the development team doesn't think that they are a problem.

Now, I can't personally and don't have the resources to fix them myself, so I am not going to jump up and down screaming. But I can't deploy Mozilla on my corporate network, either, which I don't think is a good long-term sign.
