Info RE: Mozilla Firefox & Mozilla Firefox -English (British)

This was the official site for downloading Mozilla Firefox - English (British) - Windows circa 2007 as well as Mozilla Firefox - English (British) in 2008.
The content below is from the site's archived pages.

Lots of changes has occurred since 2007. Firefox has seen lots of new iterations, and web design has expanded with new platforms that help e commerce sites. Enter the Help desk programs. When do you need a help desk? Probably when your company has grown to a size in which an email account is no longer enough to serve as the help desk. If you plan for your company to be around for the long haul, then selecting a great help desk platform is absolutely essential. Let's face it, there is no substitute for the organization and management perks a help desk provide to both employees and customers. Without it, a company simply won’t be able to achieve the kind of consistency that turns customers into longtime advocates for your brand. So just as you diligently upgrade your Firefox browser, find a help desk platform that will help your company preform better and can grow with you as your needs expand. One of the most robust platforms that will solve your help desk software conundrums is Salesforce. The progressive IT company I work for offers Salesforce enterprise implementation help for both large and small businesses. We always tell potential clients that the more of a handle they have on their customer service processes, the higher customer satisfaction rates will be, which means better ROI. Happy customers tend to become loyal customers. We can fully customized a ready-to-use Salesforce page that will accelerate their team’s productivity right away.

Downloading and Installing

System Requirements

Before installing, make sure your computer meets the system requirements.

Downloading Firefox

Mozilla provides Firefox for Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X in a variety of languages. You can get the latest version of Firefox here.  For builds for other systems and languages not provided by, see the Contributed Builds section at the end of this document.

Installing Firefox

Please note that installing Firefox will overwrite your existing installation of Firefox. You won't lose any of your bookmarks or browsing history, but some of your extensions and other add-ons might not work until updates for them are made available.

Removing Firefox

You can remove Firefox through the Control Panel in the Start Menu on Windows, by removing the Firefox application on OS X, or by removing the Firefox folder on Linux.

Removing Firefox won't remove your bookmarks, web browsing history, extensions or other add-ons. This data is stored in your profile folder, which is located in one of the following locations depending on your operating system:


Windows Vista Users\\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox
Windows 2000, XP Documents and Settings\\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox
Windows NT WINNT\Profiles\\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox
Windows 98, ME Windows\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox
Mac OS X ~/Library/Application Support/Firefox
Linux and Unix systems ~/.mozilla/firefox




  • Poorly designed or incompatible extensions can cause problems with your browser, including make it crash, slow down page display, etc. If you encounter strange problems relating to parts of the browser no longer working, the browser not starting, windows with strange or distorted appearance, degraded performance, etc, you may be suffering from Extension or Theme trouble. Restart the browser in Safe Mode. On Windows, start using the "Safe Mode" shortcut created in your Start menu or by running firefox.exe -safe-mode. On Linux, start with ./firefox -safe-mode and on Mac OS X, run: cd /Applications/ -safe-mode

When started in Safe Mode all extensions are disabled and the Default theme is used. Disable the Extension/Theme that is causing trouble and then start normally.

  • If you uninstall an extension that is installed with your user profile (i.e. you installed it from a Web page) and then wish to install it for all user profiles using the -install-global-extension command line flag, you must restart the browser once to cleanse the profile extensions data source of traces of that extension before installing with the switch. If you do not do this you may end up with a jammed entry in the Extensions list and will be unable to install the extension globally.
  • If you encounter strange problems relating to bookmarks, downloads, window placement, toolbars, history, or other settings, it is recommended that you try creating a new profile and attempting to reproduce the problem before filing bugs. Create a new profile by running Firefox with the -P command line argument, choose the "Manage Profiles" button and then choose "Create Profile...". Migrate your settings files (Bookmarks, Saved Passwords, etc) over one by one, checking each time to see if the problems resurface. If you do find a particular profile data file is causing a problem, file a bug and attach the file.
