Take that Firefox: Internet Explorer 9 beats all other browsers blocking malware. In Q2 2011, NSS Labs performed the first test of web browser protection against socially-engineered malware targeting European users. Socially Engineered Malware remains the most common security threat facing Internet users today and European users have found themselves particular targets of malware authors over the last 12 months. According to the EU’s statistics office, Eurostat, almost one third of internet users in the European Union were victims of malware infections in 2010 despite the majority having security software installed.

This report focused on URLs chosen to be of significant threat to EU users and followed the same Live Testing methodology as the global tests conducted in Q1 2009, Q3 2009, Q1 2010 and Q3 2010 (http://www.nsslabs.com/browser-security).

I believe most FF users lean on Ad Block Plus and possibly No Script Add-ons to prevent/thwart malware vise just running it "out of the box".
