    I removed the note that links to the archived article Firefox can't be opened after you install it on a Mac - How to fix. That article was archived on March 16, 2016 and is no longer needed. See this discussion for details: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-cant-be-opened-after-you-install-it-on-mac/discuss/6560

    I added "[Attn: Admin -Joni] Archive this article?" to the thread title. See bug 1072538 and this discussion thread for the background. As I read the bug, the download page message was discontinued as of Firefox 34 but I'll leave the decision to archive this article (and remove the links in "what links here" articles) to Joni. You should also contact Joni by email ... jsavage@mozilla.com ... since she may miss this discussion thread.

    Good catch. We created this article as an "emergency" short-term solution, but it is no longer relevant. I will archive this now.
