Microsoft IE8 Automatic Download Will Not Install Firefox Quantum?
First thing after installing windows 7, I tried downloading and installing Firefox Quantum.
Windows seems to have automatically made it impossible to install Firefox by changing the compatibility settings before I ran the exe file. The exe was automatically selected from the firefox download page using IE8.
Only way to install was to find the buried option "Change settings for all users" and update the compatibility options from there.
Is this another instance of windows trying to block the install of other browsers?

I think you got a over active A/V that is blocking the install.
Should not be blocking it. It may want Administrator rights. But if right click the .exe and Install as Admin should cure that. Or it may not like the stub Installer try : install with Current Release Firefox 57.0.4 with a Full Version Installer https://www.mozilla.org/firefox/all/
Please let us know if this solved your issue or if need further assistance.
The download was the full offline setup from the second URL James provided (specifically, it was https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/new/?scene=2)
After I do any reformat for myself, the first thing I do is disable UAC and the second thing is to use IE to download Firefox. This is before any windows update or anything like that (pre SP1 windows 7 install btw)
File downloaded and the compatibility options were set to run as Vista immediately.
Please note that some Operating Systems will not download browsers newer than certain specified versions.
Windows 7 is certainly not a current OS version, and IE8 is quite an outdated browser version as well.
These two combined may have been working against you in trying to access the newest version of Firefox.

Windows 7, 8, 10 are the OS's required for Firefox 53.0 and later including the current Firefox 57.0.4. https://www.mozilla.org/firefox/57.0.4/system-requirements/
Windows 7 is a current OS as it in not EOL until January 14, 2020.
Something else is at play here in setting the Firefox setup as Vista compatible.
