Firefox 2.0 dowload & usage in Windows Vista without touching Internet Explorer 7

“The ongoing issues and questions about Internet Explorer raised an interesting question: On Windows, if Internet Explorer doesn’t work for some reason, how would you get a working web browser? It turns out the windows command lineftp” tool could be used to get Firefox from an ftp mirror of the Mozilla software collection. Get to a command prompt (“Start”, “Run” and type “command”)”, revealed William Stearns from ISC.

The Windows and “R” keys pressed concomitantly also open the Run dialog box. Users can alternatively enter “cmd” in the Search box under the Start menu, right click the selected result and select “Run as administrator“. In “cmd” enter the following command without the quotes: “ftp ftp.osuosl.org“. You will be asked for your user name, and just type “anonymous”, and specify a password. Simply pressing Enter will deal with the password request, and you have logged in successfully. Now, type “cd /pub/mozilla.org/firefox/releases/” and hot Enter. Then, “mget *.exe” to access Firefox Setup After the download will be completed, write “Firefox Setup“, this time with the quotes to install the open source browser.
