My laptop is protected with the AVG AntiVirus free package. The Windows Firewall is on.

No need to go to ftp to get the full setup when there is https://www.mozilla.org/firefox/all/

To find this link go to mozilla.org -> Green box and Systems & Languages link below the Download.

Hi Martin,

Sorry to hear Firefox isn't downloading.

I'd like to try a different download link with you. Could you follow this instructions and let us know whether they work?

  1. Go to: https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/releases/latest/win32/
  2. Click the relevant link for your locale/language. (British English is en-GB, US English is en-US, etc)
  3. Click Firefox Setup 34.0.5.exe. This is quite a large file, so might take a few minutes to download. Once it's downloaded, run the file and it should install Firefox.

To explain: the Firefox Setup 34.0.5.exe file will contain everything you need to install Firefox. Firefox Setup Stub 34.0.5.exe is the normal installer - it doesn't include all of the Firefox files, but instead will download them after you start the installation. Hopefully if we download the full Firefox installer, it will work.

Cheers,

Jayelbe
