Security vs. Usability

There is a constant battle in the world of computer and network security. The battle of usability. The more secure you make something the less usable it seems to become. Case in point: Firefox is a nice browser. All browsers are open to attack or open your computer to attack. You secure firefox by installing one or many secure add-ons. Firefox now is un-usable for a large population of users. While I enjoy the feeling of security having my Firefox locked down like Ft Knox not everyone does. So that is the question; How do you make security more usable.
