Firefox celebrated a milestone birthday Monday. Five years ago today, Mozilla shipped version 1.0 of the open-source browser. Firefox was unveiled 'with belief that, as the most significant social and technological development of our time, the Internet is a public resource that must remain open and accessible to all...'
"We’ve managed to keep Microsoft honest and forced them to release newer versions of their browsers (...) Firefox's presence was a large factor in Apple being able to ship a browser to its user base as the Mac came back to the market. We've made it possible for third party browser vendors like Google to enter the market."

Congrats to Mozilla, I'm sure that I can speak for the majority of webmasters and web developers when I say that it is the favorite browser in our community. And thanks to add-ons developers too, some of them, like Web Developer and Firebug, have become essential professional tools.
But please keep the properties contextual menu for links and images in version 3.6 ;)
