Download Firefox Installer for Windows xp for disconnected networks

Hello. I want to obtain a complete install package (exe, etc) of Firefox 18 or 19 as my preferred browser on non-internet facing nodes. I have read that installers are calling out for updates upon completion and the nodes in questions cannot connect to the internet. I am looking for a complete/full install of FF 18 or 19 as mentioned above. I am not a local admin on the Internet facing pc that is being used to pull down the binaries. Thanks for any feedback.

I think the installers are complete as of the day they are packaged. Has anyone tried installing them "offline"? Hopefully Firefox runs normally even if it can't check for updates.

WOW! Thanks for the very prompt reply. It appears to be a full install as you had mentioned. I do receive an error stating "the proxy server is refusing connections" as expected but the browser appears to be complete with its install.

I will need to apply "DISA lockdowns" for the Firefox settings to be accepted by computer security. I am required to follow guidelines, automate the settings, have it apply to all users, and generate a report of these types of lockdowns.

If you have further information or pointers to that type of information it would be very much appreciated.

Thanks again for the very quick repsonse. You saved me valuable time.

Mozilla has a project underway to satisfy business ("enterprise") requirements, but special deployment scenarios are still undertaken and documented more by fans of Firefox than by the core development team. This article has many links, some of which might be useful: https://wiki.mozilla.org/DeploymentSmiley Very Happyeploying_Firefox.
