What kind of problems do you have with installing Firefox?

Also make sure that your security software is blocking the installation or the functioning of Firefox.

Remove all rules for Firefox and the plugin-container from the permissions list in the firewall and let your firewall ask again for permission to get full unrestricted access to internet for Firefox and the plugin-container process and the updater process.
