Definition A. (proper noun): An overrated Web browser made by Mozilla, often used for either:
1) The vast amount of largely-useless add-ons it has;
2) Viewing pornography on the Internet;
3) Its obvious superiority to Internet Explorer (AKA IE);
4) Its obvious superiority to all other browsers; or
5) Its obvious superiority to life, the Universe; and everything else, including the kitchen sink and a unicorn's horn count.

Definition B. (noun): A synonymous term for red panda, which is an indigenous animal to Southeast Asia.

Definition C. (verb): A rapidly-spoken order from either an organization's boss or some other high-ranking officer, most often used to kick another employee out of their job. Usually, that said employee has either:
1) The given name "Fox;"
2) The surname "Fox;" or
3) The nickname "Fox."
Example of Definition A:
Person 1: "Dammit, Internet Explorer just crashed on me again!"
Person 2: "Well, why don't you just use Firefox, then? It'll save you a lot of trouble."
Person 1: "Um, what did you say?"
Person 2: <inefficiently tries to explain what a Web browser is, and what Firefox is, and what its benefits over IE are, and so on, until Person 1 is finally convinced.>
(Later that week...)
Person 1: <goes on long rant about how awesome Firefox is.>
Person 2: "I know, right?!" (Etcetera, etcetera.)

Example of Definition B:
Some random person: "Red pandas are cute. No exceptions."

Example of Definition C:
Some CEO's Wife: "FORTHELOVEOFGOD-FIREFOX!!!!!"
Some CEO: "Okay, fine, whatever- I'll do it!"

An overrated slow loading web browser which gives users a false sense of security. Will not stop malicious downloads or viruses. Stupid users will still manage somehow to infect their machine with the latest virus/malware.

Also comes with a gimmicky extension facility to load more crap into the browser and deviate away from its core use of web browsing.

Plus, with every new release you have to reinstall all these damn extensions again. So much for usability, eh?
Why have all my extensions stopped working with the new release of Firefox?

A browser that is known to eat holes through Macs and PCs alike. Browse your favorite sites while simultaneously melting your fan(s). Watch funny YouTube videos and also take in the lovely smell of molten metal. The best browser for the multitasking type. Can also be used as a verb meaning "to bring to a very high temperature"
Dude, I totally Firefoxed my laptop.
