Howto use a Mac to download firefox.exe to flash drive to install on Win XP SP3 box?

Want to install Firefox on a new Acer Aspire 1 (ZG8) with Win XP 2002 SP3 without setting up MS Explorer. I want to do that by downloading Firefox to a USB stick, then transfer it to the Acer and install there. But my only other computer is a Mac Book Pro (OS X 6.8), and Mozilla only offers me a version for Mac. How do I use the Mac to download a windows .exe file to a portable flash drive? If I use a Linux distro and VirtualBox with my Mac, would that allow me to choose the apprpriate download for MS Win XP 2002 SP3?

Under the "Firefox Free Download" button there should be "Systems and Languages", which gives you download links to Firefox in all languages for Linux, Mac, and Windows. Here's the link to it https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all/

Thanks, Nerevakiin! Don't know how I missed that link. Have just downloaded the .exe file. :-) Thanks again.
