Posted

im trying to download the latest version of firefox but when the file download security pops up, the "from:" always looks suspiscious like 1) 3347-mozilla.voxcdn.com 2) mozzilla.mirror.ac.za 3) mozilla-nyc.osuosl.org 4) ftp.jaist.ac.jp 5) jp-nii01.mozilla.org 6) pv-mirror01.mozilla.org 7) openaccess.oldapps.com and so on. i clicked run on one of these and after the download was done, the interface is not similar to the videos shown on the website. where can i safely download the new firefox?

Those are all valid Mozilla download mirror web sites.

Show us a screenshot of what Firefox 4 looks like and we'll tell you to make it look like in the videos. Chances are that all you need to do is to hide the Menu bar so the orange Firefox button appears.
