What is Firefox Setup 3.6.10(2).exe and is it necessary?

Posted

What is the function of Firefox Setup 3.6.10(2).exe and is it necessary?

When I logged into Windows Live Hotmail today, I received a message to upgrade my Firefox browser by installing this programme. I am unable to find out any information about it on the Mozilla website.

I have downloaded to file, but am hesitant about installing it until I know more about it.

That probably means you downloaded the setup file twice. The setup file is called Firefox Setup 3.6.10.exe, but if this file already exists, a second one called Firefox Setup 3.6.10(2).exe will be created.
