I used to swear by Firefox, until problems like the one you mention started popping up. Tween that and seeing spyware pop up on it now and again, and it's problems playing well with others(particularly the ebay auction mgmt software I use), I had to kick em to the curb.

That being said, I'd take typical spyware/adware/malware/virii removal steps, kill your cache, temp files, etc.

What spyware are you seeing on Firefox? You sure it's not the normal IE spyware that's so prevalent, since IE is still on your computer, regardless of whether you're using Firefox to surf?

And that type of spyware is usually a result of a vulnerability in either Java or Flash, which unfortunately Firefox/Mozilla have no control over. Turning those off would make you safer... but then again... you wouldn't have all the pretties on the sites you visit. It boils down to whether you want to surf safe, or convenient.
