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)."

Sometimes it's activex controls causing the problem. I have contacted some of them but they have ignored my requests. Why should they bother to make a bunch of coding changes to support a browser that few use. I don't like that but how can they justify the cost of debugging it? It's much cheaper to say "use IE".
