With either Ffx or Opera, if you run much in the way of
browser-based defenses (such as NoScript and FlashBlock, or
routine cookie expiration, or referrer blocking), you may have to
go into the settings for individual sites and make pinholes in
those defenses. Afaik, this creates no increased vulnerability,
unless those sites should hire some electronic malefactor, or get
cracked to their foundations ...
