Is there a 'FireFox recommended' webpage icon and download link I can put on my website?

Browser authors used to have links that web authors could put on their pages that allowed the user to download that browser and install it if it was not the browser the user was viewing the page with. I have been unable to locate such a link for FireFox. Does such a thing still exist, and if so, where can I find it?

For those who don't understand, it would be similar to the W3C's validation icons and links that authors can put on their pages to show that the page validates with the HTML and/or CSS validator. With those links the icons are pulled from the W3C's site, not stored on the web author's site.

Thank you, cor-el!

The logo is helpful, as is the link to the download site. Is there a code snippet available to use that will direct the user when they click the link to the download site, or do I need to make one? If I need to make one, is there any specific rules as to how the link should be made, such as required alt text, image resizing rules, etc?

After writing this post, I made a logo link. My page is currently offline as I am not finished with its development, so the link is not available to see. Below is the code snippet I created for the link. Please advise if it is acceptable, or if there is something I need to change.

 <A href="https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/new/?utm_source=getfirefox-com&utm_medium=referral"><IMG
   style="border:0;width:164px;height:69px"
   src="Data/Images/firefox_logo-wordmark-horiz_RGB.png"
   title="Click this link to install Firefox."
   alt="Get Firefox Today!" /><BR>
   <SMALL>This site best viewed with Firefox.</SMALL></A>

</P>

As there has been no response to this, I will take it that the code snippet is acceptable. For anyone who comes along looking for something like this, feel free to use it. Mozilla, you may place it in your repository, if you wish, to make available for anyone who wants something like this.
