Is Firefox dying a slow death?

Glory is fleeting on the Internet. One minute a service or application is riding high with more and more users, and the next minute its appeal begins to wane as other offerings take center stage.

It’s sad to see Firefox reduced to this situation. I remember the days when its market share was increasing and more and more people seemed to be discovering it each day. It was a great alternative to existing browsers, particularly Internet Explorer for those who still used Windows. But that’s all behind Firefox now, and it seems to be facing a bleak future of slowly declining usage.
