What does each of the 3 options for installing Firefox 4 mean so that I can choose one of them "save file" is 1 of the 3?

Posted

I want so much to install Firefox 4 and when I get to the last box which says to choose 1 of 3 options, I don't know which one of the 3 options to choose because the 3 options are not defined. I don't know what each means so how am able to decide which one works for me!? 1 of the 3 optons says "save file" and the dot next to it is colored blue. I can't remember what the other 2 options are and I think you know what I am talking about. Thanks

Download a new copy of the Firefox program and save the DMG file to the desktop

  • Trash the current Firefox application to do a clean (re-)install
  • Install the new version that you have downloaded

Your profile data is stored elsewhere in the Firefox Profile Folder, so you won't lose your bookmarks and other personal data.
