Around 75% of people that download the Firefox browser don't actually use it regularly, according to figures from Mozilla.

According to the Mozilla Wiki (via ZDNet), approximately 50% of the people who download the browser try it out, but only 50% of those become regular users.  

The company has come up with a 12 point plan to deal with these issues, including changing the Firefox icon, making downloads easier, and adding a support function.

The latest browser market share figures show Firefox usage has dropped slightly - it fell to 14.37% in July from 14.55% in June, while Internet Explorer claimed 78.98% of the market. IE7 accounted for 33.1% of the market.
