I want to add firefox, but it says that it can harm my computer.....I am hesitant about using anything that can harm my computer, as I am sure you can understand....Why would your firefox harm my computer?


I was going to download your 4. version, but something popped up and said it could harm my computer...I had already downloaded Internet Explorer version 9 and am having problems with games.

That is a standard message that applies to any executable file, it is not aimed at Firefox. It is warning you that you need to make sure you know what you are trying to download. The warning is to help prevent the spread of viruses and malware. If you download Firefox from Mozilla (http://www.mozilla.com/) you can ignore the warning.
