I am running windows 7 with IE 10. I want to switch to Firefox as my browser. I am able to download the Firefox Setup 22 0 exe, but when I try to open or run it, windows prompts me to "choose the program you want to use to open this file". This happens with both the Firefox Setup Stub 22 0 exe (274kb) and the Firefox Setup 22 0 exec (21,239Kb). I can't find any program on Windows to run this exe. Same thing happens when I try to run the troubleshooter exe.
