How to install Firefox for ALL users

Posted

I need all users on my computer to have firefox. It will only install to a specific user when logged into that account. When I try to install to a second account, it uninstalls the first location.

Where is the firefox install file to install for everyone on the computer? (just like every other install program...except for this one lately.) Note: I am NOT talking about extensions, just the firefox program itself.

Hi,

You have to install it only once from any account by right-clicking on the Firefox installer and Run as administrator. All the users will have their separate personal settings.
