Firefox will not install

Firstly, I have looked around on here for a bit and have not found anything.

I uninstalled Firefox because it was needing to update for a very long time, giving me a pop up every time I would open the browser, but if I clicked on the update button, it would just take me to a page on Mozzila that showed nothing regarding updates - if you scrolled down you'd get a normal download button for the entire browser which I already had. On settings, it would tell me my browser is up to date. Websites would give me pop ups saying I need to update my browser.

So I uninstalled it. And now I can't reinstall it.

I have Windows 10. On the Microsoft store, I have Firefox, but the "install" button does nothing. This is typical for the Microsoft store for me. On the Mozilla website, I can't get past the initial download page, I click download and it takes me to an error that says "this site cannot be reached" (so, please, do not link me to https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all/#product-desktop-release or https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/new/ both take me to the same error page). I have already turned off Windows Defender, and turned off my ad block.

All of the info I have found assumes I already have the installation files, but I cannot access those because of getting the error I described above. No idea where to go from here.

UPDATE: Resolved. Used https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/120.0/win64/en-US/ and it worked great.
