Firefox was unstable and resource hungry (only fanboys can claim otherwise).
I really like how the word fanboys is used in this forum. People have other experiences with X > fanboys. Soon we will only have fanboys and haters left but no discussion anymore :D
For me FF was running stable for years and it even worked on my 5+ year old laptop. I never felt the need to look at the resource usage since it ran ok for me.

Firefox has become heavy, uses a lot of RAM and mainly high processor usage, and even then it is slower than Chrome and Opera on my system, the day they change that maybe I will give it another chance.

Never considered Firefox a good browser, even back when we only had IE, Firefox was unstable and resource hungry (only fanboys can claim otherwise).

It has been getting worse with each rewrite not to mention the poor decisions from Mozilla itself.

There's a reason Chrome got so much traction when it arrived on the market, and wasn't solely due to the fact it was from Google, but was the first and proper alternative to IE (fast and stable, contrary fo Firefox).
Your comment is may acceptable as your opinion, but your last point is just laughable, IE is out of any discussion and you claiming that Firefox never got better than IE over all the years, probably only in the world of Chrome fanboys...

This has also been my experience, especially on image-heavy websites like 500px, but I still prefer Firefox for its customization and extension ecosystem compared with Chromium.
