Ubuntu is not Firefox friendly

I made the switch to Opera recently on my Kubuntu Breezy laptop

which is why I stayed away from it for a long time. Now I find that  
version 8.51 is fast, stable (much more so than Firefox 1.0.7 on Kubuntu -  
I haven't tried 1.5 yet) and is a great tool when it comes to quick email  
(faster than KMail on IMAP accounts) and newsfeeds (faster and more  
comfortable than Akregator) reading. I made Opera my default  
browser/mailer/newsreader for the time being.

The only thing I had to do was not to download the Debian version of Opera  
but the one that comes compiled with Qt.
