I run version 26 (with a few extensions); I'm not aware of having
experienced any viruses or other malware. Whether this is due to running
XP (albeit with up-to-date (I think) virus software), or just being
careful (though not excessively so), I have no idea.
I do experience a fairly high proportion of pages not working,
especially if - as is usually the case - I don't run the browser
full-screen; it is usually formatting that breaks (sloppy page design),
I don't use complicated things like banking. I use Chrome if I really
want to look at a bad page. (The proportion that are unusable isn't
enough to stop me using Firefox, though.)
