You were able to wear a pair of Firefly's and have a good time snowboarding! I sir, applaud you and your feet.
Firefly's were my first boot, and I only bought them cause I spent to much money on my board and bindings (noob mistake). I didn't know of course that they would suck so much. Anyway if you can have a good time with them, keep them. For me they're going to stay in the Friends who don't have equipment, and don't want to rent box.
Anyway as for a boot recommendation to the OP. I used to have a pair of Vans Aura boots, they were comfortable for me. I really liked them because of their double boa system, and really nice heel hold. Sadly I returned them, because they weren't the right size. When I went back to exchange them, they didn't have my size and walked I out instead with a pair of ZF1s (but I never regretted it).
