Posted

Hello,

Thanks

It's best not to be changing the default location as there are programs that point to that location other then browser when you install it. Also if you do "express" install it will do the default install. Where are you trying to install to? firefox x64 will install default into ProgramFiles while firefox x86 will install in ProgramFilesx86 if your using a 64bit O/S otherwise a x86 will probably ProgramFilesx86 but it's been some time as I no longer use x86 due to it's limited RAM allocations not going beyond 2.5gigs of RAM usage.
