Hi, I had the same problem, and I have the solution !

Download WinRar, install it, and then, right click on your FireFox 4 RC1.exe -> Extract the files -> OK. It will create a folder call FireFox 4 RC1, go into it, and you'll see 2 folders (core and win32 - If you have W7 32 =p), and a setup.exe. Double click on it and you'll be able to install FireFox 4 ;-)

I had exactly the same problem but here is what worked for me:

1. Locate FireFox installation file 2. Run as Administrator

And this should work nicely! I hope this helps.

Share4Fun: Thank you, thank you, thank you! I've been fighting with this same problem for 3 days. I read your answer, but it didn't click until today. I downloaded and installed 7-zip (open source), ran it, and was able to extract and install Firefox 5.0.

This solution worked for me. Go to Safe Mode (press F8 repeatedly when starting your computer) and then you will be able to install Firefox without any problems! You can also uninstall Chrome easily using this method.
