· Firefox provides Anti-Malware ,Anti-Phishing & Parental Controls features for secure browsing.
· Outdated Plug-In Detection
· Private Browsing
· Anti-Virus Software - Firefox integrates elegantly with your Windows antivirus software. When you download a file, your computer’s antivirus program automatically checks it to protect you against viruses and other malware, which could otherwise attack your computer.
· Smaller Memory Footprint
· Short and sweet, Firefox uses less of your computer’s memory while it’s running.
· Faster Page Load
· Memory Management - With a new management function Firefox keeps memory usage under control.
· Crash Protection - Firefox provides uninterrupted browsing for Windows and Linux users when there is a crash in the Adobe Flash, Apple Quicktime or Microsoft Silverlight plugins. If one of these commonly-used plugins crashes or freezes, it won't affect the rest of Firefox. Instead, you can simply reload the page to restart the plugin and try again.
· Beyond Add-ons - With a growing library ofover 6,000 Firefox add-ons are the cornerstone of customization, but adapting Firefox to suit your style doesn’t stop there. You can add new search engines, change toolbar preferences, display different sizes, shapes and styles for your browser’s navigation buttons and more. With additional preferences, you can specify a Web mail client, such as Gmail, to open up when you click on an address from a Web page or set up a news reader application for the blogs you encounter.
· Add-ons Manager - The fully integrated add-on manager even lets you view, manage and disable third-party plugins in a few easy clicks.
· Awesome Bar - A quick way to get to the sites you love—even the ones with addresses you only vaguely remember.
· Location-Aware Browsing - Now Firefox can tell websites where you’re located so you can find info that’s more relevant and more useful (for example, getting directions or finding restaurants near you). It's all optional - Firefox doesn't share your location without your permission - and is done with the utmost respect for your privacy.

· Automated Update - Our open-source security strategy lets us find—and fix—security issues in record time, making Firefox the safest way to surf. Install upgrades when you receive automatic notification or wait until you’re ready.
