Both Safari and Chrome are much faster, and more stable than Firefox. So do you think with Safari's and Chrome's extensions, Firefox will die out?

Far from it. Firefox 4 has hardware acceleration and a rebuilt java engine. Im from the show me state that said i been reading that IE9 is a hole new beast. But.... firefox is solid and the addons are just and solid........

I don't think it's dead at all. Firefox's extension still beat out Chromes and certainly beat out Safari's hands down. My Firefox is actually faster than Safari. I've tried numerous times to use Chrome and I just don't like it, and still to this day have problems with it not displaying information correctly.
So no, Firefox is not dead and will not be for a very long time.

I think the Webkit based browsers are too fast, but on the stability point i don't agree. Some apps based on plugins (like Flash or Java) just don't work on Chrome or Safari. For me they are just faster, but stability and reliability is still better on Firefox. With the growing of OpenWeb technologies (HTML5, CSS3, WebGL, WebM, and others) and the adoption of them on web apps development, i think the differences will vanish.

I do not think that it will die out for a long time however I do switch between browsers I like Safari and will be switching to a Mac soon which will have Safari on it. I love Firefox and do use it however when IE 9 releases that will probably become my main browser as I also like IE. I have always believed IE to be the most secure.

Firefox have upped the anti on their vulnerability finding mechanisms. They now offer 3000 pounds to anyone who can find a remotely exploitable vulnerable, up from the 500 pounds they previously offered. Firefox is far from dead. This is the incentive they needed. Firefox will improve drastically in quality.
