Question

Where can I download and install Mozilla Firefox?


Answer

Mozilla Firefox is hosted at https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/desktop/. To download, click the the green button located on the right side of the page. This download is free and auto-detects the operating system you are using, which then customizes the version of Firefox to your operating system. From this point, you will want to allow the executable file to download, then find the folder where the executable file has downloaded and double-click to begin the installation; alternatively, all modern browsers are designed to alert a user when a download is complete. When alerted, simply click the 'Run' option given to run the executable without having to look for it.

You will want to continue through the installation to completion to fully install the browser. Once installed, it will open up and ask if you wish to sync any information that you may have in other browsers, like passwords or browsing history, to make usage more convenient; these measures are entirely optional and are thus at your discretion to use. Once this is completed, Firefox is ready for use.
