If you want to stick with the stand-alone Tor client, you can also configure your regular Firefox to use the Tor SOCKS proxy (localhost on port 9050). However, the Tor Project recommend that you browse the Internet only with the Tor Browser Bundle, since Firefox may leak data and reduce your anonymity.
