    Hey,

    Mozilla & Firefox CAN be quicker, and they are definatly more secure then IE

    u can find them both here http://mozilla.org

    Current Versions:
    Firefox 0.9
    Mozilla 1.7

    Differences between them...
    Mozilla is a suite, with lots of other things besides a browser, like email and other things

    Firefox is just the browser

    Both i believe use the mozilla engine (source)
    Both are free (open source) which means u can freely edit the source and make your own version of the browser

    hope this helps :D

    I find firefox faster than mozilla. But both are slower than Internet explorer, when starting up.

    The slower startup speed is due to the integration of IE in Windows. There no smartstart function in Mozilla.
    Once it running, Firefox is pretty quick and, as said before, more secure: because of the integration in Windows, a hole in IE is also a hole in Windows.

    also... if your using extensions.. some extensions can slow down the overall performance of the browser
