I use Firefox as my regular browser and only use IE when necessary for some webpage or download [rare]. Recently there was a flap when MS update installed a .net framework add-on and a MS Presentation Foundation plug-in to Firefox browsers. What I haven't been able to figure out via Google, Wikipedia & forum searches is what either is used for and therefore do I need them.
What applications or services would I access thru the browser that require either?

WinXP sp2 on Dell 380 w/ 512 MB RAM- currently dead in the water
WinXP tab ed sp 3 on Thinkpad X41 w/ 1.5 GB RAM - lemony flavored
Win2K Sp4 on Sony VAIO GXR600 w/ 512 MB RAM - currently blue screening
