The biggest problem with Firefox on the Mac is that it's very un-mac-like.  It
doesn't support the services menu, the network proxy settings, or the cocoa
editing keys in fields (^A for beginning of line, ^E for end, etc, stolen from
Emacs).  I also have trouble with both Firefox and Thunderbird on the Mac not
computing the width of fonts correctly, which makes typing into a long field
very very hard.

I gave up on Camino a long time ago.
