Hi,

Mozilla doesn't make DVDs or CDs of Firefox unfortunately. You may be able to obtain one however by getting a friend to burn one.

Sorry about that!

Or, use a friends computer to download a copy of Firefox from https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all/ and save it to a USB Thumbdrive. No need to burn a CD.

Another possibility is to download the file via ftp.

Open a terminal window and issue the next commands, omit the comments between the parenthesis ().

  • Mac HD > Applications > Utilities > Terminal
ftp
open ftp.mozilla.org
username: anonymous
password: anonymous  (not echoed; so easiest is to paste anonymous in the name and the password)
cd pub/mozilla.org/firefox/releases/latest/mac/en-US
ls  (verify that you are in the correct directory)
binary
lcd ~  (save the file to the home directory)
get "Firefox 25.0.dmg"
(verify that you have the "Firefox 25.0.dmg" file in the home directory)
bye
