You're right about the number of vulns in the kernel. It's upsetting.
Thankfully, though, the kernel vulnerabilities tend to apply only in a
very specific situation, and very rarely allow someone without an account
to do anything dangerous. So perhaps comparing the kernel (an operating
system) to Firefox (an Internet browser) is unfair. But I didn't bring up
apples to oranges - the comparison was Firefox and Internet Explorer, and
both have had a very embarrasing security history lately.
