You left out this part:

For all of 2006, however, the numbers were nearly neck and neck: Firefox was nailed by 87 flaws during the
12 months, IE by 92.

or this one:

In the first 6 months of 2006 Mozilla browsers had the most vulnerabilities , 47, compared to 38 in Microsoft
Internet Explorer.

This is but one metric and has little to do with the overall security of the browser.
