you will find mac firefox version here download and install it on your mac computer no cd is tequired http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all/
These instructions assume access to the internet via some kind of browser-- I need to manually load a browser via a cd-- I have the latest version of MAC
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
