While mostly positive, it does point to a few shortcomings, such as how the extensions site wasn't able to handle the onslaught right after release, which for 2 days kept the reviewer from accessing the site. He also mentions troubles managing extensions, and the issue of many sites only working with IE (which he admits isn't Firefox's fault)."

I disagree with the statement that Firefox "can't be trusted as your PC's only browser." As it is, I use it and no other, as it is more stable than any other browser that I've ever used (including the old Moz). Also, the author states that "Firefox remains too geeky for non-techies" and yet does not provide anything to detail this, rather going on about the extensions site problem and a failure with Adblock.

Other than that, I'm just fine with the review.

OT here, but it actually seems to me that Firefox is at a polish-debug-and-featurize stage. As far as I'm concerned, it's pretty much complete for a browser.
