Firefox is not intgrated to the OS, because it doesn't have an OS.
Its just a trimmed Mozilla for windows..
However Mozilla in Linux is integrated at some level...so they are just the
same as I.E.

Firefox avoids several fundamental design flaws of IE, in that:

-Firefox is not integrated into Windows, and thus closes holes
allowing access to the OS.

-Firefox does not support ActiveX JavaVM or VBScript, three Microsoft
proprietary technologies that are responsible for many security holes.

-Firefox does not allow for the invasion of your system by adware and
spyware just by visiting a website.
