Several months ago, I was having issues with Firefox, so I uninstalled it to do a clean install. After going through the full uninstall process, when my computer starts to extract the download, it stops at 61% and fails. I've gone through the registry and program files to make sure all bits of FF are gone, and still fails. Any other ideas?
