I click on download and nothing happens even though I wait (and wait and wait).

Chosen solution

So I'm assuming you are using Internet Explorer to download Firefox?

Try the following:

  1. Go to www.getfirefox.com, click the download Now button. Internet Explorer should ask you what you want to do, click Run. Firefox should install.
  2. If that fails, try using http://ninite.com/firefox/ninite.exe to download and install Firefox. Click that link, then click run. It will handle the rest.

The first suggestion was circular! (back to Mozilla, which wouldn't download. The second solution (ninite ...) worked! Thank you.

Thanks for trying -- nothing wants to download from Mozilla.
