If you really want to help Firefox succeed, file a bug on https://webcompat.com/ when you find a broken website. Don't just switch back to Chrome; let Mozilla know there's a problem so they can try to fix it.
When browsers lose market share, they fall into the "compatibility death spiral." Sites don't bother to test, they break, and users flee to the browser that "just works." Mozilla is fighting this battle every day, and it just got harder.
I have to submit a claim with my jewelry insurance company and, woo is this a bad website. Every checkbox is somehow off-by-one (so clicking on the topmost checkbox selects the second one and so on) on both Chrome and Safari; it just outright doesn't work on mobile Safari. After POSTing the form, it just redirects back to the first page (the server, which is running IIS7 and ASP.NET 4.0.30319 returns a 200 with an HTML body that does a JS redirect). GAH!

Why is #Gsuite so bad? Everyone pays tons of money for it, and most of the infrastructure is shared with other Google services (so it should be fairly cheap to operate), but Gsuite (especially the Admin panel) is a neverending sequence of dumb bugs and bad UX.
