Which internet browser should I use?

I use Firefox as my default browser on all my devices. All browsers have security issues and the major ones get updated often.

 

Help Secure your browsers

If you're not backing up your data and you're still using Google Chrome then you're just not serious about Privacy, Safety, and protecting your data. Malwarebytes is a fantastic program but you still need to back up your data and you still need to block scripts and Ads in your browser. 
Are you're still using Google Chrome? You may want to consider using Firefox instead. For more advanced users you might also consider installing NoScript as well (it does have a higher learning curve though)

You may be interested in using our new Malwarebytes Browser Guard to help protect your browser from items that uBlock or others don't target.

Also, don't forget to visit the bottom of the page listed here to make some privacy settings in Firefox if you're using Firefox, but be careful. implementing all those changes will greatly change how Firefox works and may be too strict for many users.  https://www.privacytools.io/browsers/#about_config

Hi!

It had been recommended to me to use Firefox as my primary internet browser. However, I heard that newer released have some problems with security. That's why I want to ask if it's true and if I should keep using Firefox?

Simple answer - Yes
