That's really sad. Fortunely I found this mirror to get Firefox 32.0 ftp:// ftp-stud.hs-esslingen.de/Mirrors/ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/latest/win32/en-US/ So I can be really happy avoiding to use injurious & pernicious web browsers. Firefox 32.0 will be enough for the moment.
Why can't you download Firefox via the normal HTTP servers and if necessary save the file to a removable USB jump drive?
You probably need to rename the file to something like firefox-installer.exe
You cannot force users to use a browser, remember this is a Windows machine, no wget available. Mozilla spirit and instructions must be coherent by using foss and non-intrusive tools to get a Firefox installer.
