i was always using Internet Explorer, but everyone was talking about how great Firefox is, so i finally downloaded it.....
right now i can't see any major differences, but one thing that i like is that my avatars actually show up well here...
can people tell me why Firefox is better, and the advantages/disadvantages it has compared to IE7?

I use both because some websites work better on IE while others work better on Firefox. IE crashes way too much for me though while Firefox doesnt ever crash.

Don't forget the session saver (if Firefox does crash, when you restart it will be where you left off.)
And extensions!

There are also themes, if you're into that =).

Well compared to old ie it was easy, but 7 is better. The main things are security and add ons. I assume you don't have any add ons.
I have: ad block plus (blocks ads...), pdf download, tab mix plus, video downloader (can dl flash videos from utube, etc), image zoom( hold right mouse and use wheel to make img smaller/larger), flashgot + free dl manager, forcastfox, download statusbar, clustybar (dictionary/encypedia search option when highlight + right click), more stuff such as word count, etc, etc.

IE just recently shoved the tabbed browsing which Firefox has already had for ages now.
Firefox security is still greater than IE7 in the security department....
and as for look and feel... my vote still goes for Firefox
also, IE7 still kinda crashes... and if firefox does manage to crash, which it hasn't for me, unless i accidentally kick the power button, it has the session saver function.
and... add ons for firefox are really convenient whereas with IE7 there's still room for improvement
