When I attempt to download Firefox Web Browser, I select run and it downloads a Firefox Setup 47.0.1 exe file. When I attempt to open this filet, it extracts 100% but nothing opens or happens from this point. Not sure why this is happening.

Chosen solution

After extract 100% is there any pop-up box or alert box come. There will be two option "Yes/No". Is that come? If it shows you have to select "Yes" then click next next next like other software and it will done. Or if it not come then notice me.

Hi,

I think that your download was not fulfill so it can't run properly. Can you re-download it?

Download and try to install again :)

I downloaded the link provided. Once it reaches 100% I'm given the option to either "Run" or "Open" the file. In both cases it saves the Firefox Setup 47.0.1 exe file in my downloads. When I open that file it extracts 100% and says completed. but nothing happens after this point. There is no option to install or anything. Any more suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for the assistance.

I determined that after the file downloaded I had to run/open as "an administrator" in order to prompt the "install" option. Simply trying to open the file prevented this option.
