Where is Firefox.exe located on WIndows 10?

Posted

I'd like to add Firefox to Adobe Dreamweaver for site design viewing. When searching Windows for Firefox.exe I don't see it in Program Files or Program Files (x86). Firefox is installed and used daily. Can someone tell me where it's located in Windows 10?

Firefox would normally be installed in one of these locations:

  • (64-bit Firefox) "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\"
  • (32-bit Firefox) "C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\"

How did you manage to get Firefox installed in "AppData\Local" and not remembering this ?

Right-click the desktop shortcut for Firefox and view the Properties. The Target line will show you where firefox.exe is located.

You should see the installation path on the "Help -> Troubleshooting Information" (about:support) page under "Application Basics -> Application Binary".

It looks like you installed Firefox in the /AppData/Local/MozillaFirefox/ folder rather than the more customary Program Files.

I'm not sure why it was installed there. I just installed Firefox on another machine with Windows 10. The Mozilla installer doesn't show any options for changing the directory. On that machine Firefox was installed in the usual directory C:\Program Files.

C:\Users\Justin\AppData\Local\Mozilla Firefox was the default directory on this machine when installing. Why would the installer point to C:\Users?
